Big Kev loses sight after fighting brain tumour

Events organiser Kevin Ombajo, popularly known as Big Kev, has lost his sight after undergoing a life-saving operation to remove a brain tumour.

Big Kev has battled the tumour for six years, and just when he believed he had won, it has left him with the side effect of total blindness for almost a month now.

He took to Facebook on Tuesday this week to talk about how his life has been difficult, but vowed to soldier on.


“One month ago I lost my sight, the doctors call it optic atrophy. They say that the optic nerves dried up. As I fight to recover, one thing is not lost on me I serve a God of the living, he is in the business of giving life, he is in the business of restoration, anytime you are backed up to a dead end you turn to him because that is where our hope lies,” he wrote.

Big Kev, the CEO and founder of Tru Blaq, described how everything was dark around him and that he has been unable to see his face in the mirror or anyone one around him.

Here at Nairobi News we wish him a quick recovery.
