Speaking at the meeting, Ken Waudo, the Chairperson of Comedians in Kenya Society denied rumours making rounds that the comedy industry neglected Othuol during his hour of need.

‘…that when Othuol sent that message begging for help we did nothing, which is very wrong. In the groups that we were in, there’s no day Othuol said he was in need and we ignored him. We contributed over Sh100k and he did the first MRI scan and went back home. For the second MRI, there was cash… that man never lacked,’ Waudo said.


‘Even whenever he used to send messages asking for money or food, we helped him. he used to send several people same text. We stood with Othuol and before he died, we had already contributed Ksh137,000. there’s no day he needed help and we neglected him. Artistes stood steadfast with Othuol not only when he was sick but throughout his sickness journey.’
