Kalu had set up a production business back in Kilifi but the venture did not materialize after facing challenges in the initial stages of establishing the company.

Speaking to a local news outlet, Kenyans.co.ke, Lolani narrated that his financial woes started after a contractor he had hired to build a house for him swindled him of Ksh. 1.5 million.

“I have been focusing on stories of arts and culture which is my passion, my struggles started when someone conned me around Ksh. 1.5 million. I was just a bout to build a house when he conned me”

He said.

“I did some job with a company, but again they did not pay me my dues. That, coupled by the fact that I had a sick dad to cater for really dented my pockets,” 

He added.

The reporter who won the hearts of many Kenyans with is Malimwengu show is now appealing to wellwishers to help him get back on track and continue doing what he loves to do.

“In order for me to be able to help others, I would also love for me to be helped with my production business,”

he said.

“I need things like a camera, laptop and voice recorder to enable me to continue with the content I was producing called Lamatamaduni,”

he added.

His plight was first brought to light by Eastleigh businessman Ahmed Mohamed who had inquired of the journalist’s whereabouts.
