“James Anthony Njenga was found dead on Dagoretti rail tracks. It is not yet clear under which circumstances this fate befell him, but police have been involved and more will be divulged,” read part of the statement.

Mwalimu Churchill paid tribute to Njenga on his burial day saying “ Farewell, our brother, fare thee well Njenga Mswahili. #RIPNjengaMswahili”.

Many who spoke about Njenga’s demise, admitted that fellow comedians, media and corporates gave him a deaf ear when he was in need.
