Gospel musician Papa Dennis may have been suffering from depression due to financial problems, a relative, friend and caretaker have said.

Neighbours and the caretaker of the house where he lived told the Star the “Nashukuru’ hitmaker moved into the studio – where he was found dead on Saturday – on Thursday night with a mattress and blanket.

“His former landlord had locked him out of his Jamhuri estate house and the couple, who had housed him briefly, was violent to him. That is when Mjukuu, the owner of the studio at Kirima House on Thika road, asked him to stay in the studio to rehabilitate him,” a close relative told the Star.

Papa Dennis was reported to be having issues with his girlfriend of two years who acts in a local television series.

“On Friday at 11am Papa Dennis called Mjukuu and told him that people were fighting in the house that hosts the studio,” the caretaker told the Star.

“The owner of the studio called me and when I knocked at his door to find out what was happening, Papa opened the door himself.”

The caretaker said he picked his phone and left on a motorbike heading towards the Muthaiga side of Thika Road.

Papa Dennis returned later and was joined by his twin brother Simon Mwangi and a producer for a music recording session at the same studio.

“He had called his brother to bring him his passport. We are not sure where he wanted to go,” a friend told the Star.

“He then picked his phone and a charger in the middle of the session and left, telling his brother and the producer that they were giving him a hard time.”

The caretaker on Friday night was informed by the tenants on the left side of the building (Thika roadside) that someone had jumped from the fourth floor.

“I informed the brother, studio owner and manager that one of their friends had jumped from the fourth floor,” the caretaker told the Star.

“We are not even sure how he accessed the extreme side of the building since all the gates were closed. The other option would be going through someone’s house or using the roof, which is very hard,” the caretaker said.

saving them too😊 its just how u fix your timetable.

According to the rumors circulating on social media, it seems like the two have broken up. The first step to a break up is unfollowing each other on social media and deleting the good old times on social media memories.

The National Aids Control Council (NACC) is warning that gains made in containing the spread of HIV Aids could be eroded if funding towards the campaign is not increased.

According to the council, donor funding for the fight against HIV Aids has dropped from 90 to 60 percent and is likely to go down further in future.

Already, the country’s HIV prevalence has dropped from 5.6pc to 4.9pc in the last five years according to the latest data from NACC.

Council Deputy Director in charge of HIV and investment Regina Ombam, says the Country has over the years relied on donor funding.

Ombam said that there was urgent need to increase domestic funding so as to main the standards set even as donors pull out.

“Donor funding has dropped from 90 to 60 percent and we are happy that the Government has taken over the balance of 40 percent but there is need to increase this,” she said.

Ombam noted that in the coming days the Country could stop getting grants from donors and would be required to seek loans to sustain the fight against HIV Aids.

Ombam was speaking in Lake Naivasha Resort during a Capacity Building workshop for Kiambu County officials on health governance and financing.

She praised Counties for allocating sizeable funds towards health adding that they have already trained officials from Homa Bay and Kiambu Counties on health governance and financing.

“Counties should now focus on prevention campaigns as treating the disease is more expensive and requires the support of the National Government and donors,” she said.

Professor Sylvia Ojoo from Georgetown University said that they had already established the needs of residents of Homa Bay and Kiambu Counties under the health governance project.

Ojoo said that they were working closely with boda boda operators, the youth and fisher-folk in Homa Bay in reducing the high HIV prevalence which currently is among the top in the Country.

“We have over 40,000 boda boda operators in Homa Bay and we are reaching out to them through their organizations while in Kiambu we are using the church to get the high number of students,” she said.

Kiambu County Aids Coordinator Josphat Maina attributed the cases of HIV Aids in the County to drug and alcohol abuse.

“The most affected persons by HIV Aids in Kiambu are the young ones aged between 15-24 years and we are working with other agencies in terms of prevention,” he said.
