Truthwatchdog’s Journey From Kakamega To An Influential Tik Toker

Antony Macloud Mulla, also known as the Truth Watchdog, is both beloved and despised. To his devoted followers, he exposes frauds and other societal evils. To his critics, he is an irritation trying to smear their reputations and enterprises.

His story, as given by Jambo Daily

Age and Birthday

He was born in Kakamega to an army general father. This does not mean that their lives were easy.

When he was only three months old, his mother abandoned him and left him with his twin sister. His grandma and aunties raised Tik Toker.

Philip, his older brother, was also always there for him. Despite his brother’s youth, he always looked after him. His father had died from intoxication.

Education Background

He began secondary school at Ofafa Jericho before winning a national public speaking competition. As a result of his exploit, he received a scholarship to Cardinal Otunga Boys High School, where he completed his high school education.

Relationship with his mother

He admitted to POV Podcast Kenya that he was never interested in looking for his mother till later in life.

While at school, he observed other pupils being visited by their parents, which piqued his interest in seeing his own mother. His father would only give him Ksh50 for pocket money at the time, despite the fact that he was a general and his school expenses were covered by the school.

To make ends meet, he washed people’s clothes. The Truthwatchdog recalls asking one of the teachers, who also happened to be their school mother, for financial assistance during midterm break. He was 17 years old at the time.

Anthony utilized the money to search for a relative of his mother. They confused him for his older brother, and once he explained who he was, they gave him his mother’s contact information.

When he identified himself as Antony Maclaud, she stated she didn’t know him. It took some time for her to recall him after he told her he was his second son. She grew overjoyed and promised to go meet him.

While they waited for his mother, his family butchered chicken for him. She never showed up. Then she promised to meet him somewhere in Kakamega Town. He went to wait for her, but she didn’t show up once again.

He knew it was a useless effort as the midterm break came to a close and fled. He lost interest in seeing his mother after that and moved on with his life.

Truth Watchdoh Crime

In a separate interview, Dr. King’ori recounted how he became involved in crime at a young age. He hung out with criminals and eventually got entangled.

He saw some of his buddies murdered at this time, yet he persisted. He gave up criminality when he was 14 or 15 years old, after his father intervened.
