Barely a week after Citizen TV Presenter, Swaleh Mdoe, hit the waves after declaring himself broke, another journalist has come out seeking financial help from Kenyans.
Former KTN anchor, Louis Otieno, is pleading with Kenyans to help him after he went deaf while undergoing treatment for acute pancreatitis.
A statement from the Louis Otieno Fund Committee indicated that during one of his admissions at the hospital, Louis lost his hearing and attempts to fix it were futile.
"As you all may be aware, Louis has been unwell and in and out of the hospital, being treated for acute pancreatitis. During one of his admissions, Louis lost his hearing. Efforts to fix it have failed," the statement read.
The Committee stated that the doctors proposed that the only way to fix his hearing was through a procedure called Cochlear implant which had to be performed in India.
"The cost of this very needed surgery is quite high and hence our reaching out to friends, well-wishers, former peers and anyone moved to support this man get his life back again
" they stated.
The team is, therefore, planning a Harambee to support the former anchor's treatment. All those interested to help were asked to send their contributions to pay bill number 333957.
His appeal comes days after Swaleh Mdoe stirred reactions after he put up one of his kidneys for sale at or Sh2.5 Million in order to solve a financial crisis.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, the celebrated anchor stated he had resulted to selling the kidney due to financial problems.
Mdoe divulged that he is servicing loans from different financial institutions hence could not get additional money from the same.
