Having been born with Sickle Cell Anaemia, comedian Akuku Danger has gotten used to hospital corridors ever since his childhood days. 

According to Akuku, Sickle Cell Anaemia is not being given much attention by the government compared to other terminal illnesses such as cancer. 

"I see healthcare as something for the rich...the rich can access medicine, treatment, check-up, drugs. For the poor people, it is very hard. Sickle Cell patients need to have drugs every day...and it costs money...going without the drugs is a detriment to your health," Akuku noted. 

He added that insurance plans are not comprehensive enough to cover people below the poverty level. 

"Civil servants really enjoy NHIF services, but Mama Mbogas...comedians are not accommodated enough. It only takes care of your bed and meals in hospital, and that is not enough," he said. 

Akuku Danger added that a good insurance policy should enable one to access daily drugs, treatment and not be a limited one. 

The comedian also opened up on incidences where doctors had told him that he is close to taking his last breath. 

He said that he has thought of writing a will, but does not have one yet. 

"I believe that when I am writing a will...it means I have an exit plan. One that you can somehow see. I will have to include my child in my will but I still do not have a child.

That is one thing I would like to have...once I have (a child) it can be easy to lay out the will. Because I can put my child there...my brother, sister, parents, wife, Mpango was kando...."
