Former Nation journalist reveals how he rose from an ex-convict to a C.E.O after being accused of the murder of NTV wife
In May 2011, the body of NTV journalist Sarah Wambui Kabiru was found tucked inside her bed at her residence with Moses Otieno Dola in Nairobi's Umoja estate.
Other reports claimed that Wambui passed away after having her head hit with a blunt object, leaving her frothing in the mouth and blood seeping from her right ear and nose.
Moses then went on the run after allegedly making a call to his mum in Kisumu and his father-in-law to inform them that he had killed Wambui.
He was not on the run for long as he presented himself to Naivasha Police Station where he was captured and later went on trial after spending some time in prison.
He was later released on a cash bail of 500,000 Kshs.
Life after prison has not been easy for the former NTV journalist turned convict as no one is willing to employ a person with a felony to his name.
And so he started D-Entertainment as a way of doing something positive instead of a life of crime, as a way of inspiring people and providing jobs for fellow ex-convicts.
Speaking to the Star, Dola had this to say about life in prison:
“It wasn’t an easy task, because of being a journalist. As a journalist one is always in and out of places so when you are in prison you find yourself confined now you don’t have extra room to move around…you don’t have communication with the outside world and that’s the most important thing. And so you are in some sort of mental torture zone due to some crimes you did.”
So to escape from this mental prison, he decided to place all his energy and focus on Dola Entertainment a.k.a D-entertainment. D entertainment now 5 years old nurtures talent like comedic talent,dancing and singing talents, organizes events like corporate events and provides sound for weddings.
