Popular Egesa FM comedian and radio presenter Joseph Mochere alias Okebiro O’ Mose was on Saturday morning found dead at his Nairobi home.
Mochere sources say, committed suicide following a domestic wrangle.
His wife, Teresa Moraa in a post that she has since deleted hinted at a possible feud between them.
She said: “Mtu akisema anajiua na aue watoto utafanyaje advice? (If someone says he wants to commit suicide along with his children, what can you do? Please advice)”
The deceased’s colleague Steve Detee from Citizen TV confirmed the reports saying, “Yes, it’s true he committed suicide. It was a domestic wrangle that degenerated to the sad incident.”
Mochere’s co-workers say that the comedian has never shown any sign of depression in the past.
He has been eulogized as a talented man.
Social media users and his fans condoled with the family as well. They said:
