Ex Tahidi High actor Ted Kitana, popularly known to many as Teacher Kilunda, has opened up on how a sudden loss of income following the popular show's folding up forced him to relocate to his rural home in a bid to make ends meet. Teacher Kilunda was among the star actors of the weekly local show on Citizen TV Tahidi High.

"I can say it proved to be an abrupt decision by the management because we woke up one morning and our services were not needed," he said 

"So I had to quickly devise ways to survive. The first thing was to relocate to this place (in Kangundo). It took some time to adjust, but I have come to love the place. My family is still in Nairobi, but the village life is best. Food is fresh, with no pressure. I have no plans of going back to the city unless a job opportunity comes up.


"I have a shop. I am planning to open a barbershop and other services that are not available here. I am also available for an acting job as I have not quit the stage. I am open to listening to offers and opportunities."

Teacher Kilunda appears to be one of the actors who have managed to navigate the pandemic and sought possible solutions during this challenging Covid 19 Pandemic. 

"Covid-19 is the worst thing that happened to artists because their main source of income was disrupted. Life has changed, but I advise them not to give up. Everyone out there was affected, and it is only those that leave their chin up that stand a chance at survival."
