Ruth Matete to finally lay husband to rest after three months


Gospel singer Ruth Matete will finally lay her husband to rest almost three and a half months after he passed on.

The late pastor Beloved John Olakami Apewajoye will be laid to rest at the Lang’ata cemetery on Thursday.

A family spokesman confirmed that the remains of the late Beloved John Apewajoye will be interred later on Thursday.

The body of the late pastor has been lying at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) Mortuary since April 11.

The Nairobi based Nigerian pastor succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at the hospital following a gas explosion accident at their home in Athi River on 30th March.

A Pathologists’ report revealed that the pastor had suffered 60 per cent burns that triggered a condition called sepsis leading to multiple organ failure.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition caused by the body’s response to an infection. The body normally releases chemicals into the bloodstream to fight infection. Sepsis occurs when the body’s response to these chemicals is out of balance, triggering changes that can damage multiple organ systems.

Ms Matete has been struggling to clear her late husband’s accumulated hospital bills amounting to over Sh600,000.

She recently set up an Mchanga account to allow Kenyans to help her raise the money.
