Former ‘Churchil Show’ comedian David Kagongo, famously known as David The Student, has returned home after finding life unbearable in the United States.

The comedian, who relocated to the US in search of greener pastures, ended up borrowing heavily from Kenyans in diaspora to make ends meet.

He was also accused of soliciting money using fake stories about his family and promising to pay up later. The amounts borrowed ranged from $50 (Ksh5, 000) to $100 (Ksh10, 000).

He was in mid-August put on the spot by some Kenyans he owes thousands of shillings. One Frank Njoroge took to Facebook to call out the comedian for being a con.

Frank wrote: “I want to notify you of a conman who has given some of us a hard time here in the diaspora. Comedian David the Student has taken money from our pockets in pretense of either his dad is sick of cancer, his relatives hospitalized in a coma and so many other things. I introduced him to the owner of Rafikiz Restaurant in Seattle to host him after he fell out with his promoter Steve Mbugua after he (Steve) received complains from people David has conned in the name of his promoter.”

David later took to social media to clear the air and admitted he owes people money. He said comedy in Kenya doesn’t pay and being famous and broke comes with its price.

“It is true I borrowed money but I have never told anyone my dad has cancer! I apologize to everyone I borrowed and those who lent me money and I’ve not refunded. I take full responsibility and I am ashamed. There’s so much pressure being on TV to live a certain life but in real sense it’s crazy. Comedy in Kenya doesn’t pay.”

How drunk woman paid staggering Sh36,000 on Uber

Published

on

A drunk graduate had to cough up a staggering Sh36000 after forgetting to change her home address on Uber – and ordering a cab more than 300 miles in the wrong direction.

Helen Dryden, 25, enjoyed a boozy day out in Shoreditch, east London, with friends and ordered a cab to take her home afterwards.

She had hoped it would take her to Guildford, Surrey, but she forgot her Uber home setting was set to her previous address in Newcastle, 303 miles northeast.

And the bungling Newcastle University graduate fell asleep in the back of the cab and when she woke up an hour later she was 60 miles north – near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

The driver did a U-turn and eventually took Helen to Guildford, a journey which cost the woman Sh36,000.

“I couldn’t believe it. The whole day ended up costing me about Sh52,000,” she said.

“I feel so embarrassed. I was a bit too drunk and just fell asleep. I was devastated when I woke up. I feel really stupid and completely ridiculous.”I got too drunk. I’m supposed to be getting more responsible as I get older but it’s not happening so far.”

Helen had been drinking with two friends in Shoreditch and missed her last train home.Her only option – other than shelling out more than Sh13,000 for a hotel room – was to order an Uber for the 30-mile trip to Guildford for Sh10,000.She added:

“I fell asleep as soon as I got in the taxi. I woke up at Milton Keynes and I couldn’t believe it.”I thought I said I wanted to go to Guildford when I got in. But I can’t remember what his reply was.”He woke me up and said ‘are you sure you want to go to Newcastle?'”I said ‘what, no! Why would I want to go to Newcastle?’

I ended up getting home at about 4am.

“I take responsibility for it because I got too drunk. It’s the first time I’ve ever done something like this. I’m devastated by it. It’s too much money to comprehend.”To add insult to injury, Helen says she still hasn’t paid the bill because the card she paid on has insufficient funds.

The payment will be processed on pay day at the end of the month.Incredibly, Helen went out again on Saturday night and ordered an Uber home.

This time Helen made sure she asked to be taken home.An Uber spokeswoman said: “We are currently looking into this issue.”
