Celebrated actor, Papa Shirandula real name Charles Bukeko has died after suffering from a short illness right after he got back from upcountry.

Papa Shirandula who has been entertaining Kenyans for years was pronounced dead on July 18, July 2020 at Karen Hospital undergoing treatment.

According to sources close to Sonko News, Charles Bukeko had come from upcountry and was self-isolating away from family when he was taken to the hospital.

Charles Bukeko alias Papa Shirandula had tested positive for COVID-19 after he developed breathing complications. He was pronounced dead as they arrived at the hospital.

Through Wachira Waruru, the Royal Media Services Group Managing Director released an official statement.

“On behalf of the Royal Media Services, I wish to convey my sincere condolences to the family and friends of popular TV actor, Charles Bukeko who passed away this morning.
” the statement stated.

“I received the news of his passing with shock and disbelief. Bukeko, who was known to many simply as Papa Shirandula, was a towering thespian who was loved in every corner of the country.

He endeared himself to TV audiences with his natural sense of humor and effortless depiction of typical Kenyan lifestyles.

Papa, as he was fondly known within the Royal Media fraternity, represented a pioneering group of Kenyan actors who immensely contributed to the growth and success of local productions.

I am honored to have worked closely with Bukeko in the creation of the Papa Shirandula series that immediately gained wide acceptance across the country.

His passing is, therefore, a big loss not only to the Royal media family and Kenya’s acting fraternity but also to the country as a whole.

His legacy and contribution to Kenya’s TV industry will continue to impact many generations to come.”
