Auntie Boss’s actress Silrosa says Othuol Othuol was fighting alcohol addiction.
Speaking on The Trend, Sandra, said Othuol used to drink a lot.
“He had been diagnosed with liver cirrhosis four years ago, diagnosed with Pulmonary Tuberculosis in February 2019, given medication but couldn’t stick to the dose.”
Silprosa added that he stopped taking medication after some time.
“It seems he had given up and never cared about his life,” she said.
“Artists, let’s be responsible. Tuachane na pombe.”
Comedian Otoyo had also narrated how some of Othuol’s friends tried to help Othuol.
“Around a year and 8 months ago, he was diagnosed with TB. He was given medication which he was supposed to take for 60 days without fail. But Othuol used to drink. He took the medication for a month or so and stopped. Akarudia pombe kimpango and it came to our attention. Jalas, Sandra Dacha and I got mad with him,” Otoyo said.
Plans to give him a decent burial are underway and other comedians are fundraising ahead of his burial on Saturday 24 in Alego, Siaya county. The budget is Ksh1 million.
