Leonard Omusula, the man whose fame skyrocketed due to the viral ‘Jina Hutaki’ meme, has been given a new lease on life, thanks to the compassionate intervention of Butere Member of Parliament (MP), Tindi Mwale.
Omusula’s life took a dramatic turn when he reached out with a heartfelt plea for employment, desperately seeking to escape the harsh realities of living on the streets.
In a recent interview conducted by Vincent Mboya, Omusula recounted the challenges he faced while struggling to survive without food or financial resources while being homeless since 2007. His life had been an unrelenting battle against adversity.
MP Tindi Mwale was deeply moved by Omusula’s story and his genuine desire to transform his life positively. In an act of kindness, the legislator welcomed Omusula into his upscale residence in Nairobi and offered him a job as a messenger in his parliamentary office.
This incredible opportunity infused Omusula’s life with new hope, opening doors to a brighter future he had never imagined.
During their meeting, MP Tindi Mwale shared a meal with Omusula and gave him a tour of his office, a gesture that overwhelmed him with gratitude and excitement. Omusula wholeheartedly thanked the kind-hearted legislator, pledging never to return to the streets again.
The ‘Jina Hutaki’ meme originated from an interview with K24, during which Omusula candidly discussed the challenges of alcohol abuse resulting from poverty. The video clip resonated with social media users, who creatively adapted it for various scenarios, making it go viral.
Omusula’s life took a difficult turn after the passing of his parents. Despite facing immense challenges, he remains a devoted father to his daughter, who is currently attending high school and relies on his support.
