Comedian Dan Ndambuki, popularly known as Churchill, is known for being humble and also generous. He has touched many lives by giving people a chance to make their dreams come true. However, he just did something that has been widely associated with people like late Tanzanian president John Pombe Maghufuli. Maghufuli is famously remembered for publicly firing two municipal council heads after they failed to recall government allocations for road projects under their districts.
During the shooting of an episode of the popular Churchill Live show, one girl on the production set did something that she’s still regretting up to now.
Churchill had gone to Ngong’ to the home of popular gospel songs singer Mercy Masika for an interview of her life story.
However, during the interview, her microphone, which was a tiny piece pinned to her clothes had some issues and so had to be rectified. Because of this, as Mercy was still busy talking in the interview, the abrupt unexpected figure of a young lady suddenly erupted before the cameras as she went ahead to try and sought out the issue, fumbling with the microphone on Mercy’s collar.
A visibly startled Mercy commented on the incident lightly, saying that it appeared the microphone issue was going to be an issue. Churchill, who true to his nature, continued to calmly and casually chuckle at the incident, then quietly said that this was how people easily saw their paycheck get reduced.
“Na hivyo tuu ndivyo mtu leo atapunguziwa ule mshahara alikua alipwe”
Mercy, who proceeded with whatever she had been saying before the brief interruption, laughed at what she considered was a joke by Churchill.. However, as if to clearly show that he was being serious, and it wasn’t part of his comedy routine, Churchill repeated his veiled threat.
“Today, am telling you, somebody is going home with a whole lot less than what they were supposed to go home with”.
