He always brightened our living rooms whenever he graced the screen. He left our ribs aching but he is no more. Emmanuel Makori Nyambane alias Ayeiya Poa Poa alias AKA died on Friday morning after he was involved in a grisly road accident near the Catholic University of Eastern Africa.
The late Ayeiya was in the company of his wife, comedian Wakimani, award-winning actor Maina Olwenya and a friend when their car hit an electric pole. Ayeiya died on the spot while his wife suffered serious injuries and was rushed to the Kenyatta National Hospital where she is still undergoing the treatment and reports indicate that she is in a critical condition.
Well, apart from his creativity and fresh content, Ayeiya left Kenyans with a powerful message that many will remember him for.
“TusiBLEED Ndio WaLEAD.”
This message is an advice to Kenyans to remain peaceful during the election period. In short, Kenyans should exercise free and fair elections so as to avoid a repeat of 2007 post-election violence.
