Howeer, Dacha added that the hospital bill rose to Ksh2.6 million despite managing to pay Ksh1.2 million.
The balance as of Tuesday stood at Ksh1.4 million and was subject to change until the comedian is discharged from the facility.
The actress unveiled plans for a fundraiser to clear the growing hospital bill as they did not have money at the time.
“The hospital bill stands at Ksh2.6M but we’ve managed to pay Ksh1.2M. So we have a balance of Ksh1.4M and this bill is not final and it’s subject to change until Akuku is discharged.
“We are urgently planning for a fundraiser because we don’t have money as of now. Please aki mtusaidie (help us) Msichoke kutuma hata kama mlishatuma (Don’t get tired of sending even if you’ve sent). You can send again and again,” Dacha appealed to her Instagram followers.
Akuku was moved from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to the HDU and was out of danger after doctors confirmed that he can breathe on his own.
Dacha had on Thursday, January 6 updated her fans of his condition whereby his lungs which had lost 75 per cent of their functions, are regenerating well.
Nation FM radio host Tina Kaggia had shared on Thursday, December 30 that Akuku had been admitted at Nairobi Women’s Hospital-Rongai the previous week. While at the hospital he was diagnosed with pneumonia but was later discharged and put on medication.
However, he was readmitted to the hospital after one of his lungs collapsed. Kaggia added that the comedian needed Ksh200,000 to be admitted to Nairobi West Hospital.
A day later, Daniel Ndambuki, alias Churchill, rallied his fans during his New Year’s Eve show at Garden City Mall, Nairobi to raise funds for Akuku, the response being beyond outstanding as they raised Ksh400,000 in minutes.
