The 26-year-old said trouble started when his father who was a prison officer died in 1998.

“My dad was a prison police officer in Nakuru but he passed away in 1998. He loved me so much. We were forced to move to his upcountry home and life became difficult,” Mtumba Man said.

After three years, Mtumba Man disclosed that his mother sent his aunt to take him away from her in-laws and joined his sister and mother in Malindi.
