Why Alex Mwakideu quit taking alcohol
According to reports, Alex Mwakideu stopped drinking alcohol completely after he almost missed his first flight due to being drunk.

This actually happened awhile back, when the father of three got an opportunity to travel to Germany through his then boss, and he had everything paid for.

Alex Mwakideu revealed this in an interview that he had with Oga Obinna, where he said that on the day that he was supposed to travel, he went to drink with his buddies.

It only hit him that he was supposed to travel when it was 30 minutes to time.

“I got to Nairobi early and my flight was at night and I had some money so I was wondering what to do with it. So I called my friend Chiko Lawi and told him I am in Nairobi and he came with some friends to the airport” he said.

Alex Mwakideu even had to bribe the airport officials so that they could allow him to travel while drunk, as they had told him to go home and come the next day.

“There was no way I would have gone back home. What would I have told my boss? And there were also people waiting for me on the other side in Germany. So I begged those people. I told them I knew I messed up but if I don’t get on that flight, my career would have been finished”.

“The boss came, saw me and asked me if there was anything i had remained with and I only had Kshs 2000. I gave him and he allowed me to go and board the plane, five minutes before it left. And that’s one of the reasons I stopped drinking” Alex Mwakideu added.
