Son of Former Cabinet Minister Oloo Aringo Living in Squalor in Kenya after Deportation from the US

Peter Oloo Aringo, the first-born son of former Alego MP and Education Minister Peter Oloo Aringo has narrated how his appetite for alcohol and drugs ruined his life.

Aringo, a reformed addict, attended the prestigious Consolata Primary School in Nairobi before proceeding to St. Mary’s Yala, where he developed the habit of alcohol drinking.

After completing High School studies in Kenya, he moved to the United States to pursue a business administration course at Lona College in New York.

While studying in the US, his penchant for alcohol grew and soon transformed into a drug peddler in a bid to make more money.  

“I became a dealer. I decided if I want to make more and use more, I needed to get into the business. And that’s where my downward spiral began,” Aringo said during a recent interview with KTN News.

His involvement in criminal activities put him on the radar of government authorities and did not take long before he was apprehended.

He was arraigned in court and later found guilty of drug-related charges, with the court slapping him with a 30-year prison sentence. He was however given an option of deportation which he opted for. 

He came back to Kenya with nothing. “I had no money. I had nothing,” he notes.

Back home, he found it hard to stop his appetite for alcohol and drugs, and given that he returned with nothing, he could only afford cheap liquor. The consumption of cheap liquor eventually caused him throat cancer.

“The day we started noticing a swelling on his neck, we thought it was a sore throat. We never thought it would be cancer,” his wife Catherine Boyane, also a reformed drug addict, says.

The couple, who got married in May this year, is now living in a shanty sandwiched between high-end houses in a posh estate in Nakuru.

Presently, the only thing Aringo, who grew up in opulence, can show is a wall clock with his father’s name permanently inscribed on it.
