Omosh's first wife asks Kenyans to build her a house too [Video]
Judy Wachuka, alias Mrs Ngatia who the first wife of popular actor Omosh Kizangila, has now appealed to Kenyans to build her a house.
This comes just months after radio presenter Jalang'o handed Omosh a 3-bedroom house along Kangundo road.
Speaking in a recent interview where the couple appeared together, Mrs. Ngatia said they are living in a bedsitter with their three children in Kayole.
She added that they have not paid rent for two months while Omosh's second wife currently occupies the house well-wishers built for him.
She acknowledged that Omosh's second wife took priority because she has little children who need special care.
“Even if I get a one-bedroom, metal house, I would move into it very fast. I don’t want to disturb people because I know times are hard. I would appreciate it even if I get a temporary structure for now,” she said.
Mrs Ngatia, who owes her landlord Sh10,000 in rent arrears explained that this was not the first time she was unable to afford rent but the pandemic had made things worse.
“My landlords used to see us on TV and would not believe that we could not pay rent. One time, I used to stay in Umoja but was thrown out by the landlord saying my husband has a big name,” she divulged.
Mrs Ngatia added that the situation was so embrassing that she would wear a buibui in public to avoid getting noticed.
On his part, Omosh acknowleged that in deed his first wife needed a house to move into and avoid paying rent.
"Luck fell on my second wife but my dream is to also build my first wife a house. If we can get money, there is land where a house can be built for her. Before I die, she will have a house," Omosh vowed.
Mrs Ngatia added that one of the wishes of Omosh's late father was for the actor to build his first wife a house at a piece of land in Karura which he allocated them.

I’m a father of Two - Willis Raburu’s humble request over his late daughter Adana
Citizen TV Presenter Willis Raburu issued a statement requesting media outlets and blogs to address him as a father of two whenever they are making reference to the number of kids he has.
The 10/10 host made it clear that just because his daughter passed on, that doesn’t stop him from being a father of two. He noted that he has always been addressed as a new father or father of one, something he said is not factual.
“It has however come to my attention while reading some of them that I am constantly referred to as a “Father of One” This however is not the case. As many of you know I lost my daughter Adana. For those who have gone through such loss, you know that it Never leaves You” Raburu said.
Raburu pointed out that pain of losing a loved one (Daughter) never goes away and sometimes he wishes that his daughter was still alive.
“Society often, though not always, tends to annihilate the man, make him look devoid of feeling because “Men ought not to feel” or “You did not carry the baby” while the last one part is true, what is also true is that we feel. That I feel pain each day, that I still cry, that I still wish she was here. I honor her” said Raburu.
Willis Raburu went on to acknowledge that recently, he welcomed a bouncing baby boy with girlfriend Ivy Namu, and whenever he looks at him, he sees pure Heaven.
“Recently, I got an amazing young boy. I see Heaven each Time I look at him. He truly my heart. I am therefore without a shadow of doubt a FATHER OF TWO. Not a new father.
I would therefore like to request the blogs who know me to refer to me as such. Loss is painful but can never be negated, no matter what or who thinks so. It’s humble request not a demand, should you still continue to refer to me otherwise is Ok. I know my Truth. That Willis Wayne Edwin Opiyo Otondi Raburu is a father of Two” wrote Willis Raburu.
