Double tragedy for ex KTN anchor Louis Otieno as his mother is fired from Royal Media

Louis Otieno’s mother was among several Royal Media Services (RMS) employees that were sent packing after the media house conducted massive organizational restructuring.


RMS has dropped the axe on more than 20 employees including prominent persons like Kirigo Ng'arua, and Terryanne Chebet.

Elizabeth Omolo, the mother of former television personality, Louis Otieno, was also among RMS employees who were fired.

Omolo was the head of Ramongi FM; she also doubled up as a presenter at the vernacular radio station which is under the umbrella of RMS.


Ms Omolo’s firing comes as a double tragedy for Louis Otieno who has been living with her since troubles befell him.

Louis has been fighting in the corridors of justice to prove he had no hand in the murder of Careen Chepchumba, whom he had romantic relationship with.

His health has deteriorated ever since he was linked to the murder of Careen Chepchumba; he now lives with his mother who has been struggling to see her only son gets well again.

His appearance in public after a long time in the dark shocked many as he had significantly lost weight; he looked sickly when he appeared in Kibera Law Courts during an inquest into the death of Careen Chepchumba.

With his mother shown the door at Ramogi FM, Louis’ quandary has only taken a new twist.
