Popular Churchill show comedian Jemutai Chibambe has appealed to the public to come to her rescue after admitting to struggling to make ends meet and surviving on debts.
The comedian reached out to blogger Edgar Obare to help her in selling her Facebook account for Ksh 1.7 million.
The comedian held that the amount would help her cclear her debts including rent arrears.
“I am a mother of two and a comedian. Life is becoming hard every day and I have lots of arrears. I want to sell my Facebook account to anyone in business. It has over 850,000 followers. I am selling at Ksh2 bob per follower,” Jemutai pleaded in a post seen by Kenyaleo.co.ke.
“I want to be able to start a business and take care of my children. I know it is was a desperate move but I wanted to pay my bills. As a mother I would do anything for my kids,” she added on her social media pages.
Jemutai shared that she has been struggling to feed her two children and things appear to be getting tougher.
She urged netizens not to pile the blame on Churchil as has been the case in the past when a section of Kenyans have taken to social media blaming the Classic 105 FM presenter for the misfortune of other comedians.
“I don’t want anyone to blame Churchill as I don’t have any issues with him. He is such a nice boss. Selling my account was my personal decision because that’s like my asset,” Jemutai pleaded.
She joins a long and growing list of celebrities struggling to make ends meet as the effects of Covid-19 pandemic continue to bite.
Others include Njoro the comedian and actor Omosh (Peter Kinuthia), Miss Morgan of Tahidi High among others.
