"Laying to rest one of our comrades. Njenga Mswahili will be missed dearly, may his soul rest in peace. #RIPNjengaMswahili," he posted on Instagram.

The late Mswahili first appeared in the show in 2013 and lately on an on-and-off basis.

Njenga was found dead on Thursday, November 7, in Ndonyo Market, Dagoretti South, after allegedly being hit by a train.

Although the exact cause of his death was not immediately established, Comedian Eric Omondi said he was going through a rough patch and suffered from depression.
