Funny guy Timothy Kimani, better known for playing the character of Njugush in the Real Househelps of Kawangware, has announced his departure from the television hit show that airs on KTN.
As eDaily reports, Njugush shocked his fans when he posted on social media that he will no longer be part of the cast due to a number of reasons which have made him call it a day.
According to the actor who has become a darling of many, change of directors and scripting of the show are among the reasons that made him make the decision that has left the lovers of the show dumbfounded.
He posted: “Hi Fam, I will no longer be on #trhk sad as might be. This is due to important aspects of the show changing for the new season. The aspects being scripting and directing. Change is not bad, but without gelled and oiled transition I feel it would put characters, plot, and the whole show in jeopardy.”
While speaking to Citizen, Njugush noted that the former directors of the show; Abel Mutua and Philip Karanja, who are also former Tahidi High actors, left and therefore he has no business being in the show reason being he believes the manner in which the change was done is likely to bring disarray in the show.
“I do not have any business being there because I am not sure if the new guys who are coming are going to be good. The production team did not make a seamless transition between the directors. The new team should have first shadowed the original director and scriptwriter of the programme before being given full responsibilities. For them to just come in and expect the tempo to maintain: it cannot really work,” a disappointed Njugush said as quoted in the report.
The actor also took the opportunity to show gratitude to his fans and supporters in general for the love the continued love they have showed him for the time he has been at the show, which catapulted him to fame, saying he will be back soon with something different.
He added: “However am really humbled for all the support you’ve given me as a character through and through. I have grown in measures unforeseen, and for that I will forever be grateful for your undying love. Above all God for weaving this basket to completion. Should things change you’ll be in the loop. But don’t be mistaken will be back soon in a new outfit,” he added.
In Real Househelps of Kawangware, Njugush portrayed the character of a young man struggling to make ends meet with a number of ladies in the area fighting for his love.
