Following the sad and tragic demise of Kalasha Awards Best comedy performance winner, Nancy Nyambura, popularly known as Jastorina, the Citizen TV comedy has been cancelled.
The vastly talented actress succumbed to meningitis complications and it appears producers of Jastorina could not find a capable replacement and opted to cancel the show altogether. She played the lead character of a mistreated househelp in the programme that aired on Saturday at 5pm. Prior to starring in Jastorina, Nancy also starred in Mashtaka, a courtroom drama that also aired on Citizen TV. Her character was particularly interesting because of the heavy vernacular accent.
The show which attracted a substantial following will be missed.
