Eric Njoka shocked the nation when he was busted soliciting for sex from a fellow man on the world’s largest gay social networking app, Grindr.

Well, Eric Njoka has dropped yet another bomb; the K24 anchor revealed he was a mortuary attendant, in a newspaper feature by People Newspaper.

Njoka disclosed that he took over family business, Mukoe Funeral Home in Githunguri, Kiambu County, after his father died.

“In 2003, he offered me Ksh 2,000 a month to work in the morgue. I was to diligently watch how the attendants prepared the bodies, concentrating as much as I could because I would step in to assist as an extra hand.

Seeing the shape in which some of the bodies were in gave me nightmares and left me distraught.

But I eventually overcame it. At the end of the day, I had to be at my ‘A’ game and not show the bereaved that I was disgusted or scared of treating their fallen loved ones,” Njoka Narrated.

The K24 anchor is now the manager of the family owned funeral home, he says he works at the mortuary whenever he’s off or during the weekend
