Today, family, friends and the entire Papa Shirandula cast gathered at Pride Inn Azure in Westlands to pay tribute to the late Charles Bukeko on his first death anniversary.

During the commemoration, media personality Jalang’o alongside Njoro(Papa Shirandula cast) and Captain Otoyo promised to cater for Papa’s youngest daughter-Sherry school fees until she completes school.

 “From today onwards, Sherry should never worry about her school fees, we will handle it, myself, Otoyo and Njoro.

He continued to say;

“I will give you a cheque to cater for her entire primary school at Moi Educational Centre and even when she joins form one. Never worry about her education because if Papa was alive, he would have catered for that in a good school.”

His sentiments brought Papa’s widow Beatrice Andega to tears noting;

“What Jalang’o has done has really made my heart. God is a God of solutions.”

Papa Shirandula popularly known for his lead act on the local TV drama series, passed away in 2020, July 18 while receiving treatment at the Karen Hospital.
