A team from the People Living with Disability network (PWD) in Migori found him after they launched a crackdown in the county.

He told them that he has never stepped out of house since he became paralyzed.

According to him, the door was always been locked from outside and only opened by family members to deliver food.

Mr. Ojowi further intimated that his wife deserted him because of the disability.

Chairperson for PWD Migori chapter Albert Matara said it was very unfortunate that some people living with disability spend years locked up yet mobility equipment is available.

He appealed to Migori residents not to seclude people living with disability and then handed Mr. Ojowi a mobility device.
