Popular comedian and Egesa FM presenter Joseph Mochere has died on Saturday morning.
Mr. Mochere alias Okebiro O’ Mose, reportedly committed suicide following a domestic wrangle in his Nairobi home.
Prior to the dramatic Saturday morning episode, his wife, Teresa Moraa hinted of a possible brawl between the couple.
“Mtu akisema anajiua na aue watoto utafanyaje advice?” she wrote in a post that would be deleted later.
This loosely translates to: ” If someone says he wants to commit suicide along with his children, what can you do? Please advice.”
Citizen TV reporter Steve Detee confirmed the incident even after Egesa FM head of Radio Nancy Omweri failed to reply to the texts and phone calls.
“Yes, it’s true he committed suicide. It was a domestic wrangle that degenerated to the sad incident,” he said.
Mr. Mochere is popular among local listeners and his comic is celebrated throughout Gusii land.
He has been working for the Royal Media Station for a while after being recruited by former Nyamira Women Rep Alice Chae.
