Zeddy The Comedian has decided to take a bold move and go out of her way to help her fellow comedians who have been suffering in silence.
The last couple of weeks has her fellow colleagues feeling her love and appreciating her for the care and concern.
Through her social media accounts, Zeddy has been highlighting the poor state of most Churchill Show comedians who’ve sunk into depression.
Over the weekend she went to visit Njoro all the way in Nakuru to see how she can help him, and also rally their fans to assist in whatever way they can.
Njoro was moved by Zeddy's visit saying she is the only comedian who has visited him. He shared his sad life story, leaving many touched.
"MAISHA IMENITANDIKA SANA. I CONTEMPLATED SUICIDE THREE TIMES NA ZOTE ZIMEFAIL BUT THAT’S GOD’S PLANS. HADI MATHEE AKASEMA HAPANA HUYU KIJANA ANAENDA…"HE SAID,
TRUTH BE TOLD SIKO POA. MIMI IT DRAINED ME MPAKA NIKAINGIA DEPRESSION AND IT WAS BAD. I’VE BEEN ON MEDICATION BUT THINGS ARENT GOOD. MY DAD WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STOMACH CANCER, I HAVE FOUR KIDS TO TAKE CARE OF…AND LOST EVERYTHING.
Njoro, who cracked our ribs whenever he stepped on the Churchill Show stage went ahead to share disturbing details.
‘OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, AND DECEMBER LAST YEAR NILIKUWA MBAYA. INSTAGRAM YANGU SIKUWA NAPOST ANYTHING BECAUSE I WAS IN A BAD STATE. I WANTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE AT VIEWPOINT BUT GOD SENT SOMEONE. I WAS SAYING MY LAST PRAYER WHEN A TRUCK DRIVER HEARD ME. HE PUT A TOWING ROPE ON MY CAR AND AFTER I WAS DONE WITH PRAYERS, I WAS READY TO DIE BUT THE CAR WASN’T MOVING. HE TOLD ‘HUTWAFANYA HIO KITU’ AND WE ATTRACTED A CROWD,’ HE RECOUNTED.
The father of four continued,
THE FIRST SUICIDE ATTEMPT I TOOK RAT AND RAT AND THE SECOND ATTEMPT I BOUGHT DAWA YA NG’OMBE (CHEMICAL USED IN CATTLE DIPS TO CLEAN ANIMALS) AND ANOTHER TIME I TRIED CHOPPING OFF MY WRIST, BUT THEY ALL DIDN’T WORK. I LOST EVERYTHING, FRIENDS AND THAT’S WHAT TRIGGERED DEPRESSION.
He admitted that he stopped taking alcohol and would like to get help from a mental health expert to counsel him and asked well-wishers to give him a job.
SAHII COMEDY NO. KAMA KUNA MTU AKO NA KAZI ANIITE HATA KESHO NITAANZA.
The cases of comedians suffering in silence as their lives are being eaten up by depression is worrying.
