TV 47 presenter and comedian Sande Bush alias Dr Ofweneke has opened up on how he tried to commit suicide thrice when he was a standard two kid.
Ofweneke was speaking to former Nation FM presenter Cate Rira’s new podcast show dubbed ‘Point of View’ when he shared his experiences as a child.
The comedian said that he was living with his late uncle and aunt at the moment and life was unbearable considering what he was going through at such a young age.
“My uncle used to have tracts of land and so used to take care of them. The farm bordered Malava Forest and I use to get here early in the morning and leave late in the evening when it was dark to go back home.
“I used to carry a sufuria, water, and salt to my small hut that was in the forest. I used to boil either groundnuts or beans for my lunch and the situation was unbearable,” said Ofweneke.
” My mum and dad were in Nairobi and they had separated for a while and everybody was just everywhere.
“I was like why did they have to throw me in the middle of the forest? That time I was either in class two or three,” added Ofweneke.
He explained that he was deeply frustrated and that is when ideas of ending his life started crowding his mind.
His first two attempts to end his life failed miserably but the funny man had to think of another way of escaping reality.
His third attempt to end his life also failed and that is when he sat back and thought about everything that had happened.
He finally gave up on trying to commit suicide but he didn’t understand that there was a purpose and vision as to why he was still alive.
Dr Ofweneke concluded by stating that he is glad he didn’t die because he has helped change many lives through comedy and that he is grateful to God.
