In Kenya, he attended the prestigious Mary Consolata School and later joined St Mary's Yala where he picked up a drinking habit according to a KTN television feature.

Peter Oloo Aringo, who bears the same name as his father, underwent a brutal reversal of fortunes after being deported from the United States of America, where he had gone to pursue a Business Administration course, for dabbling in drugs.

"I became a dealer. I decided if I am gonna make more and use more let me get into the business and that is where my downward spiral started, " he said.

He was given two options, serve a 30-year sentence or be deported to his home country, he chose the latter which seemed less harsh.

Spending three decades behind bars was something he was not willing to agree to and so he was sent back to Kenya.

He arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) with virtually nothing, not even his travel documents.

When he came back to Kenya, he did not kick his drinking habit and started drinking cheap liqour.

He is currently staying in Nakuru County where he is battling throat cancer believed to have been caused by his drinking habit.

Peter Oloo has now opted to stay clean and is a reformed drug addict who is leading a poor life in Nakuru, a departure from the opulent life he was brought up in.
