  • Renowned Radio Jambo presenter, Mzee John Toldo Kuria's family, is pleading for financial help to cater for his medical expenses.

    The veteran sports presenter at the Radio Africa based station is seeking to raise funds to facilitate a kidney transplant in Turkey. 

    According to a notice shared on social media, Kuria's family is on a financial drive to raise Ksh4.3 million.

    "Mzee Toldo, our son, father, brother, and friend was recently diagnosed with kidney failure and requires an urgent kidney transplant. This will be undertaken in Turkey and the total cost of the operation is Ksh4.3 million. 

    "We therefore kindly appeal for your financial support to help the family raise the required funds to quickly enable him to undergo the treatment," read part of the medical appeal.

    According to Toldo's colleague, Fred Arocho, the radio presenter has been unwell for some time and needs specialised treatment. 

    "My brother and colleague at Radio Jambo, Toldo Kuria (Mzee Toldo), has been unwell for some time," Arocho confirmed.

    His sentiments were shared by NTV Presenter, Carol Radull, who also rallied Kenyans online to contribute. 

    "My good friend and football commentator Toldo Kuria is unwell and in dire need of your prayers and financial support. Any amount will be appreciated," Radull wrote.

    Recently, the family of Churchill comedian, Mannerson Oduor Ochieng (Akuku Danger), also urged Kenyans to help offset an accruing medical bill.

    The plight caught the attention of Kenyans as well as Daniel Ndambuki alias Churchill, who rallied Kenyans to raise more than Ksh400,000 in minutes for the comedian.
