Churchill comedian Njoro opens up about depression and attempting suicide thrice

Churchill comedian Njoro, real name George Maina, revealed on the 20th of July 2020 that he has been battling depression.

He further revealed that he had attempted suicide several times, but they have all been successful. Njoro was speaking to fellow Churchill comedian Zainabu Zeddy who had paid him a visit at his Nakuru home. He further thanked her, acknowledging that she is the only colleague who has ever visited him since he moved back to his parents’ house.

“You know, when you lose everything, you also end up losing the people you used to call your friends. I have tried to take my own life three times, but by some miracle, I failed in all my attempts. It must be God’s plan, but truth be told, I am not well at all,” Njoro confessed.

A depressing journey.

The comedian then went on, narrating how his life changed after he lost everything, causing him to hit rock bottom. His situation worsened after doctors diagnosed his father with stomach cancer.

Njoro revealed that his mental health deteriorated in October, November, and December 2019 that he tried suicide. Overwhelmed, he drove to the Rift Valley viewpoint and was planning to drive off a cliff.

However, by God’s grace, a truck driver saw him as he was saying his last prayers. Without Njoro’s knowledge, he silently attached a tow to Njoro’s car, which he had parked at the edge of a cliff ready to drive off. When Njoro attempted driving, the car did not move.

“After I was done with my final prayer, I stepped on the gas, but the car didn’t move an inch,” the comedian explained.

Later on, he tried slitting his wrists and also drank rat poison. However, all three attempts were unsuccessful.

Njoro appealed to his fans to help him out.

After Zeddy left, the Churchill comedian took to his Instagram and thanked Zeddy for the visit.

“Thanks for the visit. I cannot pay you, but God will,” he wrote.
