Tough Times: Churchill Show Comedian Akuku Danger Evicted From His House By Landlord Over Rent Arrears.

The corona virus pandemic has created a never seen before tough times to citizens within the country and the world at large.

When the virus hit the country in early march last year, Kenyans were still not aware of what was awaiting for them.

In fact at the onset most people thought the virus was not affecting Africans since its spread was relatively slow.

One year down the line the storyline is a different one; jobs have been lost, zero employment opportunities, poverty and deaths have been the order of the day.

President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to put counties in a lockdown with a dawn to dusk curfew for everybody.

Since the president gave that statement a week ago, there has been public outcry on how such decision was arrived at while people were equally suffering and starved.

Most artist and politicians have called on the head of state to please reconsider his decision and open the country and the economy just like our neighbours Tanzania.

Today, Kenyans were surprised as a renown comedian who used to work at Churchill show was evicted from his house over rent areas.

In a video that was shared by blogger Cyprian Nyakundi, comedian Akuku Danger is seen carrying his mattress and his belonging from the house.

The case of Akuku is just one of the many cases of brokenness that very many artist are facing during this time when most entertainment joints are closed.

Netizens wished him a breakthrough with others will to donate something for his upkeep.

In previous reports by Mtaa Buzz, the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage launched the “Work For Pay” Kshs. 100 million stimulus package for artists, actors and musicians at the Kenya Cultural Centre.

This is in line with the Executive Order issued by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta on 6th April 2020, directing the Sports, Arts and Social Development Fund to avail Kshs. 100 million to cushion those in the creative industry during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds will be distributed through a campaign dubbed ‘TOGETHER AT HOME’ spearheaded by Government Agencies and Departments, as stipulated by the Regulations establishing the Sports, Arts and Social Development Fund.

Artists from different creative sectors will be required to produce works that entertain and educate Kenyans and the world on the safety and health precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19.

These artistic productions will be carried through various assets set up by the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage such as “KULTURE TV” and other collaborative media outlets.

“This campaign will use entertainment to centralise three crucial aspects of our society: the importance of new avenues for work, creative community education and sustained mental well-being for all Kenyans during this period.

The Kshs. 100m is therefore not a reservoir of free funds, but a provision to educate, innovate, sustain and improve our output as a sector.

The objective is to continue developing and nurturing talent to ensure that the sector remains a significant contributor to our economy post-COVID.” said CS Amina Mohamed during the launch.
