Former News Anchor Lolani Kalu, just a week ago, was at his lowest. Kenyans, however, are working hard to ensure he goes back to his glory days.
The famous journalist was hosted by Jalang’o on his popular Vlog and narrated a tearful story of how he ended up losing his mojo and almost being reduced to a beggar.
It all started after a construction contractor stole two million shillings from him. His father then got sick and he spent whatever was left to save his life but sadly died in 2019. Since then, the popular journalist has never recovered.
On Jalang’o show, Kenyans managed to raise more than Ksh 100,000 as the two were chatting about life and Lolani’s new vision now that he’s going back to reporting.
“Tunapoendelea Mafans wako wengi wanasema Jamani Kalu Jamni tupatie hata number ya M-pesa tukutumie kitu Mpesa, Wanakuopenda hawa?” said Jalang’o.
As the money trickled in, Lolani was pushed to tears something that moved many.
“Usilie Lolani, machozi yameanza kukutoka…Lolani ni vizuri kulia, ni vizuri kufurahia, siku zote na kushukuru, lakini utanifanya na mimi nilie pia,” said Jalang’o.
Just a week ago, Lolani asked Kenyans to help buy equipment so that he can get back to freelance journalism and with a day, he had achieved that goal with a total of 250K contributions.
“Nililipa hii camera Shillingi 270K, kila nikiiona hivi nalia yani wale mashabiki wangu ambao wanapenda vipindi vyangu walichanga pesa, hii camera si yangu ni ya ma fans wangu…hii sasa tutarecord na mafans wangu…nilitaka camera na computer, hivi tunavyo ongea kuna mtu ameninunulia MacBook Pro 14 inch. Sasa nah ii tuitaenda live and pia kurecord wengine pia for free.”
