Eric Omondi reveals how comedian Njenga Mswahili suffered depression
Comedian Eric Omondi has revealed that comedian Njenga Mswahili was depressed for three years.
According to Eric Omondi, the comedian who was found dead in Dagoretti last week, had not been doing well and had even tried to reach out to fellow comedians for help.
“The last I remember, I heard that Njenga was born again and that he had started going around preaching, a few months later I met him at the former Nakumatt Junction where he went on to tell me that he was not doing well. We were at the supermarket section where I went on to pick out a few items for him.” he said
He also revealed that the comedian had suffered financial problems at one point was even arrested for shoplifting.
Omondi also went on to blame himself for not helping thinking that Mswahili would pull through.
“I also blame myself for assuming he’ll be alright especially due to the natural habit of assuming men can battle themselves out of any situation. Njenga was crying out for help during his darkest times but everyone -including me, was simply too busy with our own lives to lend a hand, it’s like we have lost our humanity.” he added
Njenga Mswahili was found dead at Dagoretti rail tracks on Thursday 7th November.
