Kenneth Gichoya known by many as Njoro for his role in the TV show Papa Shirandula has said he is still in shock over legendary actor Charles Bukeko’s death.
Njoro and Bukeko have acted alongside each other for over 10 years and his death on Saturday came as a shock.
Speaking exclusively to Mpasho he said,
‘I AM FINE BUT STRUGGLING WITH THE DEATH OF PAPA SHIRANDULA.
WE HAVE BURIED HIM BUT I HAVE NOT ACCEPTED IT.
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO GIVE YOU ‘NOTICE’ MAYBE THEY WERE SICK BUT WHEN SOMEONE JUST DIES, IT’S HARD TO ACCEPT.’
Njoro said what made it even harder to believe that Papa Shirandula was dead is that he has in the past been ‘killed’ by blogs.
‘IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME HE HAD BEEN KILLED BY BLOGS, I HAVE ALSO BEEN KILLED THREE TIMES BUT IT WAS JUST FALSE NEWS.
WE HAD TALKED TWO WEEKS AGO AND WHEN A FRIEND OF MINE CALLED ME WITH THE NEWS I TOLD THEM THAT IT WAS ‘WALE MABLOGGERS’.’
