Churchill show comedian popularly known as Othuol Othuol is dead.
He passed on at Kenya National Hospital where he was hospitalised a few days ago in critical condition.
The news was confirmed by Churchill Show comedian Zainabu Zeddy who took to her Facebook page to post Othuol’s photo with the caption “RIP” Rest in Peace.
Comedian and Churchill show Creative Director Lawrence Macharia alias Terrance Creative also posted a farewell message following Othuol’s demise.
“Rest In Peace bro Othuol Othuol aki nimeisha nguvu (I am incapacitated),” read a post from Terrance Creative.
His health had deteriorated and upon being rushed to the hospital, he was not attended to due to the health worker’s strike.
He was thus rushed to Shalom Hospital in Machakos where he was admitted.
“Othuol is in critical condition. He is admitted,” actress Sandra Dacha told a local publication at the time.
Othuol has been in and out of hospital for the better part of 2020 and his close friends have been asking Kenyans to pray for him.
Earlier in June, the comedian was also admitted in circumstances that exposed the sad state of the Health sector in the country, most especially the negligence at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
In a detailed Facebook post by one of his close allies, the comedian reportedly fell sick and fainted before being rushed to Kitengela Hospital. He was later referred to KNH with the hopes of getting advanced treatment.
However, the post indicated that the comedian was left unattended to thus spend night in the cold awaiting admission.
In July 2020, the hilarious comedian was diagnosed with Tuberculosis and was admitted at KNH where he was later discharged.
However, about a week ago, he was re-admitted again though it was not immediately established which disease he was suffering from.
The comedian will be remembered for cracking Kenyans with hilarious jokes.
He was among several artistes in the country who received Ksh10,000 to cushion them from the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.
