So, ya’ll remember Vincent Omondi? The now former street urchin who picked up KSh 200,000 and returned the money to its rightful owner in March 2017?
Yes, I bet you do. Omondi once led a normal life, having worked as an IT expert at the giant Nakumatt Holdings having graduated from St Paul University with a degree in IT, that was until his life faced hardships that left him homeless and on the streets.
His mother died of cancer in 2008 and being put in a position to fend for his siblings left him in depression with a drug problem that cost him his job.
Vincent Omondi’s life changed from that of a street urchin after his selfless act saw an owner receive his money back.
But on one fateful day, he picked up an envelope full of money that a man had dropped while walking along Kimathi Street towards Kenyatta Avenue to bank the money.
He followed the man all the way to the bank and handed back the money without asking for anything in return, thus sparking changes in his life.
Social media campaigns were started to ‘fix’ his life. He was taken off the streets, clothed and fed as he prepared to enter rehabilitation.
He’s back now, in great shape and with a request we bet many won’t deny him.
Taking to social media, Omondi, alias Vince Dancer, updated his social media friends with progress of his rehabilitation as he asked for help to find permanent employment.
“Hi guys, it’s me Vinny aka Don who returned KSh 200,000 4 months ago. I know up to now i still say the Lord has his miraculous ways of working so I chose rehab for treatment first. So now it’s back to the real world. Recovery is a process and believe me (this is) the hardest process I’ve ever gone through but I pray that God continues standing by me and I want to thank all my social media fans,
"If now I only had a permanent job or at least something to give me (money for) rent, fare and food; clothing will come in time but I thank you all and hope for your continued support I LOVE YOU all and May God Bless you,” wrote Vince on Tuesday, August 22.
