A resident in the town identified as Daniel Muthomi Mbungu, told that Ngwaci used to abuse various substances, among them miraa and cigarettes, and he was in very bad condition.

"Whenever he got a coin, he would rush to buy miraa and enjoy it without a care in the world," he said.
Ngwaci was used to moving from one club to another, carrying a bottle containing tea alongside muguka. He started chewing his favourite stimulus from the Mitheru bus stage to Chuka Town. His only business was Muguka," added Muthomi.

Recently, Ngwaci attended a church event, and the Tharaka Nithi county assembly speaker, John Mbaabu, noticed him.

"Ngwaci is a constant figure in church activities, and his love for church music is unsurpassed. Yesterday, as I handed Chuka Catholic their choir uniform, one member missed out; I promised to kit him so he attends church smartly dressed," said Mbaabu.
