Fallen comedian Othuol Othuol was laid to rest at his home in Alego on Saturday 24th October in a ceremony that was marked with its share of drama.
A close source who attended the burial ceremony told Ghetto Radio how mourners from the capital left villagers stunned during the ceremony.
According to the source, there was little food to cater for the huge crowd of mourners who turned up and this resulted in some friction.
The group from Nairobi allegedly started fighting and scrambling for food all in the shock of villagers.
“They did not expect such a huge crowd and that proved to be a challenge. The, mourners who came from Nairobi also shocked us when they started fighting for the little food that was available.” The source said
Guests who also stayed overnight when the body arrived on Friday 23rd also allegedly went into hard partying.
They got hold of locally brewed alcohol and resorted to all kinds of behavior.
Comedians had earlier asked for help in raising one million shillings to carter for the funeral expenses.
The committee tasked with planning the burial also came out to defend its Kes. 1 million budget for his final send-off.
Some comedians were forced to go have their lunch at comedian Jalang’o’s rural home after the drama broke out.
However while appearing on NTV’s The Trend on the chairman of Comedian society Ken Waudo alongside comedians Terrence Creative and Sandra Dacha of Auntie Boss said the money was also meant to carter for the fallen comedian’s debts as well.
During the burial, comedian Churchill also cautioned comedians against treating his fans as family.
According to Churchill, many comedians choose to run to their fans when faced with a challenge yet the same fans often don’t come through for them.
