The family appealed to Kenyans to contribute towards a kidney transplant procedure that Gathu was to undergo.

A major fundraiser was held in June 2022, where former President Uhuru Kenyatta contributed Ksh 2 million towards settling the hospital bill.

In August 2022 , Gathu updated his fans that the Kidney transplant was successful and he had since been discharged.

“I have been in hospital since July 18, 2022, and I was discharged on August 3, 2022. I feel so good,” he said.
