Kiss 100 radio presenter and comedian Jalang'o has been using his influence as a celebrity to change the lives of needy Kenyans. Just recently, he mobilized fans, friends and corporate companies to come to the rescue of former Tahidi High actor Omosh after his plight was highlighted.
Jalas, as he is commonly known, raised over Ksh 1 million for Omosh and transformed his life. The kind-hearted radio presenter has been given another huge task after a sad story of an ailing young man called Harun Njeri was highlighted by Tuko.Co.Ke.
For the past 15 years, Harun has been depending on well-wishers to survive after his hands were paralyzed. It all started with a small pimple on his right hand before the strange disease left him physically challenged despite undergoing 10 surgeries , forcing him to drop out of school.
Fearing that he would become a burden to his mother, Harun became a street beggar until he met a good Samaritan who housed him.
Kenyans tagged Jalang'o the sad story that highlighted Harun's plight after it was aired on TUKO and urged him to come to his rescue. The young man needs Ksh 5 Million for surgery and the philanthropic radio presenter has promised to start an online campaign this week to fundraise for the money.
Jalang'o noted that it's a challenging task but he believes that he will manage. "Weeee.....Next week tuko na kazi!!!Naskia lazima tutafutie huyu kijana Harun kama 5M .I have never been tagged in a post like this case!! 5M tutapata!! Na Harun Njeri ataenda surgery....Amen?'' he posted on his Instagram page.
Here's the link to Harun's story that has touched the hearts of many Kenyans.
