Con story

Approximately one out of 5 Kenyans have been conned at one point in their life and the actor is one of them. During a promo episode on Janjaruka Series, he gave an account of how his love for gold ended up costing him Ksh20,000 of his hard earned money. The 51-year-old had always wanted to own gold and he met someone who promised to get him the original thing at Ksh20,000.

Of course, he told the person to test it out before parting with the cash. The person tested it by first burning it with a cigarette lighter followed by pouring battery acid on it. The gold stayed intact and he was assured it was the real deal. Imagine his shock when he decided to bathe with the gold chain one day and the gold washed off leaving him with a silver chain. 



On 30th April 2021, K24 reported that police were investigating an incident where a security guard was shot and killed along Moi Avenue. The incident involved Ainea Ojiambo. According to reports, he was talking to a lady when he was accosted by two thugs who allegedly tried to snatch his gold chain. Ojiambo removed his gun and fired at the thugs who took off upon seeing the gun. Unfortunately, he missed the target and shot a security guard instead. A stray bullet also hit a passer-by and the actor was taken in for questioning.
