The man currently battling depression says he feels like he has let down his children for failing to fend for them.
Sleeping on the floor
"We sleep on the floor and sometimes we can go for days without food. Whenever I come home empty-handed I feel so bad I cannot even face them. I especially pity the youngest. Some of my friends just buy me alcohol whenever I go begging. They tell me it's to help me drown my thoughts," Hemed said.
The man whose kids struggle to go to school says he wants to relocate to the village and start afresh.
"At least there's a piece of land in the village where my late mom lived. I will stay there as I pick up my pieces," he told TUKO.co.ke's Yvonne Kawira in an interview.
