More Kenyans who formerly performed for Daniel Ndambuki on his “Churchill Show” have come out to protest what they term as exploitation by an extremely greedy employer.
Speaking out via an anonymous e-mail forwarded to this site’s Chief Editor Cyprian Nyakundi, the frustrated employees claim that Mr Ndambuki took off with their dues which he is yet to clear despite recently signing a multi-million deal with industry disruptors TV47.
When the pandemic struck in 2020, he dismissed the team made up of long-serving technical crew members and casual labourers and promised to preserve their roles until Live recording of his show resumed.
Interesting to note, this was done through a WhatsApp message.
But to their surprise, when Mr Ndambuki moved to TV47, he unveiled a completely different team to avoid paying the other guys.
According to the group, two of their former colleagues have already died in their struggle for justice.
Prior to their deaths, Mr Ndambuki had reportedly ignored all their calls for medical help.
He did not even attend their burials.
Thank you for always helping Kenyan workers from exploitation by greedy employers.
I would like to highlight the suffering that Churchil has caused to his employees by refusing to pay them their dues yet he is a millionaire who spends all his time in Ngong road womanizing and drinking alcohol.
He was paid millions to join TV47 but he has refused to pay his former workers.
When the show stopped churchil owed a lot of people money and some of it was brought to the lime light #churchillpaycomedians #churchillpayinfliencers.
He only paid the people who had the ability to make him trend.
But refused to pay the humble guys who were doing odd jobs like cleaning, guards, cooks casual laborers since they dint have ways of airing their plight.
And also his employees and technical crew producing the show.
He had promised the technical guys and employees that when the show comes back he would give them work and also pay their debts. But he has now gotten new technical crew at tv47 to avoid paying his old crew.
He closed office and fired everyone through a WhatsApp message. This is a very toxic employer who has brainwashed Kenyans to believe he is a generous soul.
Two of his former employees Makena and Kevin died while asking for their dues to seek medical attention but he blocked them.
He dint even visit their families or even contribute towards their burial.
Another is sick but he has refused to pay him his dues.
Kindly highlight this issues and help so many people.
I have attached some screenshots,” our source writes.
Two years ago, Mr Ndambuki responded to allegations he does not pay comedians performing on his show by defending himself and saying that the truth will be out one day.
The accusations tabled against him came up after a popular veteran blogger fingered him for taking advantage of his entertainers.
