Fallen comedian Othuol Othuol’s father Peter Omondi has revealed that he has not seen his son since January of this year.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio News, Mr. Omondi said he spent the last few months of 2019 with his son in the village but after he returned to Nairobi early this year they only spoke on phone.
The grieving father said he had received calls about his son’s ailments severally and hoped that he would be treated.
‘I live in the village and my son had come home towards the end of last year. He was here after receiving treatment for TB and he recovered. In the village he was just okay, there was no sign of him being unwell.He traveled back to Nairobi in January and because of the current situation I did not manage to see him before his death. A few months back we were told he was taken to the hospital and was told he had a brain tumor and lack of calcium.” He said
Othuol’s father revealed that the comedian was in the process of building a house in the village before his untimely demise.
‘He left the house he was building in the village so we want to see if we can finish it up before his burial. So far we are in the planning process of planning his burial and hope that he will be laid to rest on the 24th.’ He added
He revealed that most of the burial plans will be coordinated in Nairobi by Othuol’s younger brother and a select committee.
Earlier the chairman of Comedians in Kenya, Ken Waudo appealed for well wishers to help raise funds to help offset pending bills as well as plan for the comedian’s send off.
