Kenya's No 1 GhettoRadio



A family in Nanyuki is overly excited after reuniting with their son who has been living in a bush by himself for years.

Quiet boy addicted to substance abuse

Brian Kamau who studied at Nanyuki High School scored an A- in the 2014 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and went to Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).

However, in his second year, Kamau was involved in substance abuse which saw him drop out of school.

“My son Kamau has always been a good child. He is a quiet boy and loves to obey. He started changing after joining campus bad company influence. My son started using abusing substances and became an addict,” Kamau’s mum said as recorded by Facebook user Derrick Mbugua in his post.

Kamau’s mum CRB listed

She recalled the day before she parted ways with her son, Kamau used her phone to acquire loans.

“I recall before we parted ways he had used my phone to get loans KCB, M-Shwari, and Fuliza to a total of over KSh 50,000. I have never paid till today. I have been listed in the CRB. I am not against anyone willing to help my son to go back to school and counselling since siwezi manage na niko na huyu mdogo,” the mother said.

Kamau’s father who had been hosting his boy in his home in Nanyuki said he had no problem as well with anyone who wanted to come to their aid.

He said he was struggling to support Kamau and his new family in his one-bedroom rented house. Kamau told Mbugua on phone he was an addict but has reformed as of the past few days he had been sober.

“If I get a counsellor I will appreciate. For the last few days since I left the bush, I haven’t used any substance. I know it’s my last chance. I will not mess up. I have learnt the hard way,” he said.
