“Leonard Mambo Mbotela is due for discharge Friday November 13, 2020 as per the doctor’s recommendations to continue with homecare treatment,” said Mr. Mutavi.

“The medical bills have accumulated to Sh.1,105,498.78 as of today and have to be cleared upon discharge. Any assistance given towards offsetting this bill will be highly appreciated.”

Mbotela is famous for his show “Je, Huu Ni Uungwana?” that was relayed on state-owned KBC Channel 1 and KBC Radio Taifa. Born in 1940 in Mombasa, Kenya, Mbotela joined Voice of Kenya (VoK), now Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC), in 1964 and has had a successful career that spans more than five decades. He briefly worked with Kenya Weekly News and the East African Standard before joining KBC. During the attempted 1982 coup, Mbotela was forced at gunpoint to announce on air that Moi’s government had been overthrown.
