Life is full of ups and downs indeed. That is why it is always said there’s moving from rags to riches and riches to rags. However, the son of former assistant minister of Power and Communications ( Harry James Onamu) named Timothy Lyany Onamu is not classified in this. His father was also a member of Parliament for Hamisi Constituency in Western Province.
His father passed on in 2003 when Timothy was in class 6.It was around that time that powers purportedly tormented him and his properties plundered, diminishing him to a town homeless person. Lyany told The Media, “I was unfortunate to be conceived around then, amid his pickles and shockingly, life has been hellfire for my mother who is presently visually impaired.”
“My mom battled and took me through secondary school. Later, I joined the College of Nairobi in September 2011 for an undergrad Four year education in science (Bsc) degree. I got a Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) advance of Sh55,000, Sh6,000 bursary what’s more, infrequent pocket cash from my mum who cooked for my charges, settlement and upkeep in the city,” said Lyany.
He asserts that he was compelled to skip addresses for odd occupations in Nakuru to get cash for upkeep.
