Comedian and radio host Oga Obinna has responded to claims of one Facebook user going by the name Derrick Mbugua that he was arrogant after he refused to donate to a fund drive of a sick girl going by the name Ivyn Ketra at Kahawa Wendani, Nairobi.
Derrick while narrating his encounter with the Nation FM presenter had said that he first with comedienne Eunice Mammito who was driving a Mitsubishi.
He went on to say that he stopped Mammitto who was in the company of her friends and she listened to him before she contributed to the fund drive together with her friends.
However, upon meeting Obinna, things changed. He said that he explained every detail regarding the fund drive only for him to speed off without offering any help.
However, in response, Obinna ridiculed the claims as he wondered what he did at Kahawa Wendani to an innocent Kenyan.
He said that anyone who knows him personally and they see negative stories about him; should read them based on their previous interactions with him and forward him the baseless stories.
“If you read post news about me or that can help us make Mulla, text or call a brother. Entitlement” read part of his statement.
According to Derric Mbugua, Ketra had been diabetic ketoacidosis which is commonly known as Diabetes Type 1, and needed Ksh. 360,000.
He explained that Ketra had been discharged from the hospital after well-wishers contributed Ksh. 123,000.
He said that the hospital Director Abdinasir Yussuf said that that the bill was more than the said amount (Ksh. 360,000).
However, the hospital waived the remaining money and told them to pay the amount they had raised so that the girl could go home.
He also revealed that upon her discharge, they met former Ruiru Member of Parliament Ester Gathongo at her workplace where he helped the family with shopping.
In other news, Kenyans had come out in large numbers to help out a little girl by the name of Little Ayah who had been reported to have only a few months to live if she was not given a dose of the world most expensive drug (Zolgensma) which is estimated at a cost of Ksh. 270 million.
However, her mother in an interview with a local daily expressed her optimism saying that she was sure her daughter would live to celebrate countless birthdays
