The comedy fraternity in Kenya is mourning the sudden death of Churchill Raw star Njenga Mswahili.
His body was discovered in Dagoretti by the railway tracks.
Here is a photo of the police collecting his badly mangled body from the scene of the accident.
Churchill paid tribute to Njenga in this moving statement that went viral online.
In his private Facebook account, Njenga posted some telling thoughts and quotes that explain his mind frame in the months and days leading up to his death.
One post read:
“As I was reflecting on my life today, I asked myself, have I been living like Christ? Doing the things Christ used to do and shunning all that Christ never did because that is what being a Christian means.
I just prayed for God to forgive me and from today henceforth anisaidie niishi maisha yanayoiga Yesu Kristo. A Christ like life.”
In another post, he wrote, “You’ve done so much for me…I cannot tell it all…..NALE KELE mo”
He was quoting a praise and worship song by Travis Greene and Tim Godfrey
In another post, Njenga quotes another song by R Kelly.
“Today I echo the words of R.Kelly, “I’m that little bit of hope when my back’s against the wall”.”
At one point, Njenga got spiritual and in one post, he wrote what looked like an affirmation to his God.
“Ngai ni mutugi,maundu maria ekaga ni makugegania…ndahana ta mundu. (God is great, his deeds are beyond comprehesion. He is not like man.)”
Adding “I believe that each and every one of us would desire to be exalted by God. But He only exalts the humble. So if you are humble, please maintain. If you’re not, I plead with you to change otherwise God will eventually humble you.”
He continued, “On the other hand, if you happen NOT to be humble nor otherwise, I humbly urge you to decide who to become. Otherwise, you’ll always remain the same….hauinuliwi, haushushwi,uko tu pale pale. Hon. Kibaki would call them watu wa kurega kurega.”
