Actor Omosh offers to sell ‘his’ house for Sh15 million

Controversial actor Joseph Kinuthia, popularly known by the stage name Omosh, was recently duped into attempting to sell a house that Kenyans built for him.

In a prank video posted on YouTube by Komic Gang, a lady approached the former Taahidi High actor posing as a client in need of a house having relocated to Nairobi.

And Omosh, who appears to be tipsy, initially refused to play ball, saying the said house was a ‘gift’ from Kenyans.

“I cannot sell my house. It was a present from Kenyans. I cannot sell,” he says.

He then changes his mind after the ‘client’ persuades him and begins mentioning numbers.

Omosh finally gives in, slapping in an opening offer of Sh17 million.

“I can sell it at Sh17 million… Give me Sh15 million and I will give you the keys. The deal is between me and you, I don’t need permission to sell my own house,” Omosh says even as a man identified as Shadrack tries to talk him into changing his mind.

The three-bedroom house in question was gifted to Omosh by a well-wisher namely Linnet Kathy Kathambi after another well-wisher gave him a piece of land.

Media personality Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o was also instrumental in settling Omosh and his family.

When he was formally handed this house months ago, Omosh promised not to sell it.

And earlier this year, Omosh opened up on his financial struggles even as Kenyans turned out in large numbers to support him.

And come June, he again asked Kenyans for financial help after receiving nearly Sh1 million from well-wishers.

“People pledged money that I have never received. I got less than a million, which I used to settle my debts,” he said during an interview with K24.

And just recently, his first wife Judy Wacuka, an actress popularly known as Mrs. Ngatia, also asked Kenyans to build her a house.

In an interview with a local YouTuber, Mrs Ngatia who was accompanied by her husband Omosh said she has a piece of land in Karura and needed well-wishers to chip in and help her build her home.

“If I get a house, even a one-bedroom Mabati house so that I am not bothered by paying rent in Nairobi. I am asking for even a Mabati house, right now, I live in a bedsitter that I pay Sh 5,000,” she said.

Omosh is married to two wives and has five children.
