The Entertainment Industry is in mourning after losing Comedian Ben Maurice Onyango, popularly known as Othuol Othuol, while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital.

The Actor and Comedian died on Sunday at around 3pm at KNH where he was allegedly admitted on October 5th.

The 31-year-old Comedian, who has been suffering from a brain tumor, was rushed to KNH after he collapsed.

“This is the second time he has been hospitalized in the same facility suffering from brain tumor complications,” said Comedians In Kenya Society Chair, Ken Waudo.

The Churchill Show comedian’s health had been deteriorating for a while now and was rushed to KNH three months ago after collapsing in his house.

However the hospital had left him in the queue without attending to him which prompted a public outcry on social media.

Othuol Othuol was diagnosed with Tuberculosis in 2019 but made a full recovery.

He will be remembered for his role in local program ‘aunty boss’ and his comedy on Churchill Show while donning his signature green suit.
