Papa’s Death

The death on Mama Valeria Makokha come a year after her son Charles Bukeko aka Papa Shirandula also passed on.

Papa Shirandula died of breathing complications at Karen Hospital where he was rushed by his family on July 18th, 2020.

The 58-year-old actor played the role of a stereotypical security guard living the daily hassle and bustle familiar to a majority of Kenyans.

Not only did he represent the new-age personalities of TV comedy, who took over from legendary characters from long-running shows like Vitimbi and Vioja Mahakamani, but he also contributed to the transformation of acting in Kenya from a low-paying job to a successful one.

Almost all of Papa Shirandula's cast members have since become well-known, appearing in ads, hosting radio shows, and amassing fortunes.
