Musician Karangu Muraya has for the first time spoken of what he went through after the death of Ezekiel M. Jacob.
Speaking exclusively during the handing over of a house to the family of the late Ezekiel, Karangu sought to clear the air over allegations meted against him.
According to Karangu, an enemy of ones achievement is either a coleague or a friend.
The popular MC whose trade was badly hit by COVID-19 pandemic, had launched an online campaign to fundraise for the late veteran Musician, Ezekiel Jacob.
Through his online platform, Newwelll Kigooco, he was not only able to source funds for Ezekiel’s medical and burial but also enough money to buy a plot and resettle the family.
Ezekiel had been diagnosed with cancer stage four. He would later succumb to the disease leaving behind a family of five and a widow. In a bid to cater for his medical expenses, Ezekiel had sold even his inheritance piece of land leaving the family homeless.
Through mobilisation of Karangu and Journalist and pastor Ann Lawrence, kenyans of goodwill were able to buy a plot and build a house for the family of Ezekiel Jacob.
This good course has, however, caused misery to the organisers after naysayers and malicious people went on name tarnishing spree.
According to Karangu, his close friends who include fellow Gospel musicians had caused him pain. They accused him of embezzling funds contributed by well wishers in support of the family.

“Let me tell you. I asked myself what wrong I had done. I was being fought from all corners. My body was in pain to a point I used to go to hospital but I was not sick”, said Karangu.
The emotional MC said what pains him much is being fought by a close friend. Likening his tribulations to those of Paul of the bible, he said the tormentors will soon face the wrath of God.
“When you see your friends who you have walked together turn against you, it must pain you”, said Karangu
Mkenya News has since learned that a section of musicians opposed to Karangu’s steering the project had invited auditors to audit the cash sent by well wishers and how the amount had been used.
“I was called by reporter from a local media. They informed me that they had a story involving me and the way I had handled the project”, says Karangu.
