Githeriman (Martin Kamotho) is back to his old ways of abusing alcohol and according to drug and addiction counsellor Sgt Moses Kimenchu who is on a mission to rescue him, he is in stage five level of addiction.

The Head of State Commendation (HSC) holder requires urgent medical attention and counselling, says Kimenchu who visited him in Kayole where he lives.

Last year Githeriman was admitted at Mama Care Addiction and Recovery Centre run by Kiambu Woman Rep Gathoni Wa Muchomba. He went through the programme and even awarded certificate in an event graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The County government employee went back to drinking shortly after the rehabilitation programme.

“Even after rehabilitation he went back to his usual living area. There was no follow up from the rehab’s management, and then the man was already frustrated by the various sponsors who had hired him to advertise their products but failed to pay him yet people perceive him as a rich man. He must have turned back to drinking to run away from criticism and questions,” Kimenchu says.

After he became a household name, Githeriman (Left) was invited to high-profile events.
