Popular comedian Wakimani has admitted to severely paying for the death of fellow comedian Ayeiya in whose car he was driving before he breathed his last.
Ever since Ayeiya, born Emmanuel Makori Nyambane bid the world goodbye, his close ally Wakimani has had it rough from the family who immediately sued him for the death demanding a whooping KSh 21 million as compensation.
Well, with a court order on his hand and a sum total he did not know how to repay, Wakimani soon after sank into depression.
And like Zeddy had recently revealed, Wakimani contemplated selling his kidney at Nairobi’s Nyayo just to foot the bill.
Sadly, Wakimani drove the car on that fateful day, while ferrying Ayeiya, his wife and a friend before the fatal accident.
Speaking on life after the accident during a recent interview, Wakimani confirmed the reports narrating:
After the accident, we buried Ayeiya and I thought everyone understood that it was an accident. But after a week or 2, Ayeiya’s wife called me and told me she had my letter and we should meet I take it. I met her on the following day and she served me with a court order indicating that I’m supposed to pay KSh 21 million for killing her husband.
Breaking down the huge bill, Wakimani explained:
The lawyer told me that Ayeiya was earning KSh 300,000 every month. So since he was earning 300k and died at 31, he was supposed to be retiring at 55 years old. They did the calculation for the remaining 24 years…I was also asked to pay for the damages. The case is in court.
Turns out, on that fateful day before Ayieya passed on, he was making his comeback at Churchill Show and called upon Wakimani to pick him up. Only for tables to turn on him.
At some point, I’ll have to retrieve the phone calls for them to understand. My fans don´t have to see me as a person who can sacrifice a friend. He was my friend and that´s why since then I´ve fallen out but I hope I´ll be back.
