While a good section of Kenyans mourned the death of the iconic Churchill show stand-up comedian Ben Morris known by his stage name as Othuol Othuol, another section has accused Churchill show host Daniel Ndambuki of abandoning the comedian.

A few numbers of Kenyans say Churchill could have extended a helping hand to the comedian who was earlier diagnosed with a brain tumor.
However, in an earlier interview, Othuol Othuol had stated that Churchill had in fact been helping him financially cover his medical bills.

The Churchill show has now lost 5 comedians in the last two years.
Several comedians including the late Othuol had openly confessed to battling depression and at times addiction.
Albeit unconfirmed, details have also emerged showing the late Othuol Othuol last minute’s appeal for financial support.
In a message alleged to have been sent by the comedian two weeks before his demise, Othuol detailed how he needed Sh15,000 for treatment.
The hypocrisy in us is disturbing. Suddenly, every celeb and comedian is sad that Othuol died. Guys never cared when he was fighting for his life. This idiot ignored his message until after he was confided dead. #othuolOTHUOL pic.twitter.com/WJTJzeJP97
