Gospel artist Ruth Matete is finally set to bury her husband at a public cemetery today in Nairobi.
A family spokesman said remains of the late Beloved John Olakami Apewajoye will be buried at the Lang’ata cemetery today.
The body has been lying at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) Mortuary since April 11 when he succumbed to fire-related injuries while undergoing treatment at the hospital.
Most of John’s relatives and friends reside in Nigeria and will not be able to attend the burial because of the ongoing Covid 19 travel restrictions.
He succumbed to burn wounds resulting from a fire incident that occurred at the couple’s house at Gateway Estate in Athi River on March 30.
John succumbed to the burns on April 11. Officials said he suffered sepsis and multiple organs failure amongst them deteriorating renal and liver functions.
Ms Matete has been struggling to clear her late husband’s accumulated hospital bills amounting to over Sh600,000 which she partially raised through M-Changa, an online fundraising platform.
Ms Matete has been questioned by Directorate of Criminal Investigations over her husband’s mysterious death.
