jastorinaKenya’s TV industry was left in shock on Saturday following news that comedian Jastorina had died. Real name Nancy Nyambura, Jastorina starred in Citizen TV’s show by the same name.

She played the mistreated househelp in the programme that aired on Saturday at 5pm.

Previously, Nancy starred in Mashtaka, a courtroom drama that also aired on Citizen TV. Her character was particularly interesting because of the heavy vernacular accent.

Just hours before her death, Jastorina won the award of the best performance in a comedy at Kalasha Awards.

The actress succumbed to meningitis complications. She leaves behind two sons.

May God rest her soul in peace.
