Comedian Mzee Majuto was one of the legendary entertainers in Tanzania who opened doors for other comedians. The comedian cum actor died on August 8th at 8:30 PM while undergoing treatment at Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam.
In May this year, he had undergone treatment in India. After getting better he went back to Tanzania. Recently, his condition worsened and he was admitted to the ICU.
His wife, Aisha Yusuf says she was chased away from the house she and the comedian were staying after his death. The two got married on the 27th December 1997 and sired four kids.
The 38-year-old widow opened up to MillardAyo.
Tulikua tukiishi Tanga kwa miaka yote.
But did Mzee majuto’s relatives chase her out?
Kweli. maana toka nimeingia na msiba marehemu mume wangu pale nyumbani, hakuna mtu alinijali kwa vyovyote, kwa kula wala kuniuliza hali mpaka nimemua kuondoka kutokana na hali haiko shwari.
She added that some of the relatives told her to cater for herself and the mourners before and during the burial:
Niliambiwa ‘Kuanzia sasa hivi jisaidie mwenyewe kupitia pole unazopewa na watu.’
She says she used the money she got from President Magufuli to feed the mouners and cater for the funeral.
Laikini ukweli toka amekufa marehemu mume wangu mpaka sasa hakuna mtu amenisaidia zaidi ya Watanzania na marafiki wa marehemu mume wangu.
