Remember the street guy who made headlines in March after returning Ksh200, 000 that had fallen out of a woman’s purse?
Nine months later, Vincent Omondi alias Vince Dancer, is back on the streets.
Omondi’s selfless act made headlines, especially because Omondi, 28, lived on the streets and the money would have drastically changed his life.
Kenyans on social media, including the businesswoman who accidentally dropped the Sh 200K, came together and got him admitted to a rehabilitation center to fight his drug addiction.
Five months later, he completed his stint in rehab and expected those who had promised to help him to fulfill their promises. However, those who made the promises have reportedly stopped communicating, leaving Omondi to fend for himself the best way he knows how.
Speaking to The Nairobian, Omondi revealed that he lives with a friend in Nairobi’s Eastleigh area and survives on menial jobs at Nairobi’s Wakulima market that see him pocket around Sh300 on a lucky day.
“Once in a while, I’m tasked with offloading fruits from Tanzania. I also clean shops. I am proud of what I did that day,” he said adding that all he is left with is hope that someone will help end his tribulations.
