Veteran actor and comedian Eric Mabedi, popularly known as Jakobo, returns home on Saturday after undergoing a successful kidney transplant at BLK Hospital in India.

Friends of Eric Mabedi spokesperson, Higger Mkandawire, said Mabedi will depart on Friday on Ethiopian Airways.


“He will sleep over in Ethiopia after departing on Friday and arrive in Blantyre on Saturday,” Mkandawire said.

Mkandawire thanked the government, media, Mwaiwathu Hospital and well-wishers who supported Mabedi to successfully undergo the transplant.

“We would like to thank the government, doctors at Mwaiwathu and Queen Elizabeth for the support to Eric Mabedi, the media also helped a lot, and Malawians for their prayers and support,” he said.


Friends of Eric Mabedi sounded an SOS that Mabedi needed K20 million to undergo a kidney transplant in India before the government came will support.

Before leaving for India, the Kwathu Drama Group director and National Theatre Association of Malawi President had been undergoing dialysis at Mwaiwathu since August last year.

Mabedi Tuesday thanked God for being with him throughout the process.

“First of all, I would like to thank God for taking control of everything. Second, I would like to thank the doctors here in India for a successful kidney transplant. I would also like to thank the government, Mwaiwathu, the media and Malawians for their support,” Mabedi said.

The actor was officially discharged on Monday after his last checkup.
