Dr Ofweneke was responding to utterances made by the former Vioja Mahakamani actress over the decision by KBC to hire a youthful cast.
“We grew up watching her. She has been our role model for all those years. We so admired her. But it was wrong for her to dismiss us as just youths from Mathare and Kariobangi.

It showed a lot of disrespect for the same youth who have been looking up to people like her,” he told Word Is
Ofweneke is now one of the youthful cast in Vioja Mahakamani alongside Nice Githinji, gospel singer Aliwa among others.
