KTN’s Anthony Ndiema is a calm beautiful soul who almost lost his life in the hands of thugs.
The TV host for the popular inspiration show Tukuza narrates how in 2008 when he was working for Hope FM an angry mob descended on him and beat him to within an inch of his life.
Anthony keeps counting his blessings after getting stabbed thrice and getting nerve damage that almost lead him being crippled for life, he says, “I many not be as sporty as I used to be, but I’m blessed. I have a wife who didn’t even notice that I limped till after several meetings. It could have been worse I believe. I’m a living testimony of God’s miracle.”
In a candid interview with Nairobian, Anthony Ndiema says the thugs must have trailed him from work after he passed by an ATM to Kawangware where they attacked him.
“All hell broke loose when I alighted from the matatu. I heard a man shouting, ‘Mwizi! Mwizi’. I was still figuring out who the thief was when a burly man next to me hit me on the face and i fell on the ground. The next thing I knew, people had surrounded me kicking and throwing things at me. One man even came with a big brick and hit me on the chest. I was stabbed three times, twice in the stomach and once in the back. Someone even suggested that they should burn me…I gave up and covered my face. I was ready to die.”
Luckily, two good Samaritans showed up and they helped him get to Mbagathi hospital and he was later transferred to Nairobi Hospital. Here the doctors told him “that my nerves were injured when i was stabbed and that meant I couldn’t walk again.”
Anthony Ndiema says he prayed a lot and the following morning he felt his toes twitch. Thanks to rigorous physiotherapy, the TV host got better and the only remaining evidence of that traumatic evening is a limp.
