Njenga Mswahili was found lying dead on a rail track in the morning. It is not yet known how Mswahili ended up on the train path.
“Laugh Industry grieves the passing on of James Anthony Njenga aka Njenga Mswahili, which occurred on the morning of November 7, 2019. We express our deep and heartfelt condolences to the grieving family, and join in their prayers for the deceased,” said the company in a statement issued Thursday afternoon.
