The loss of a loved one is a feeling one can never put into words. But losing another person so close to your heart, becomes a tall order.

July 2020, BBC journalist, Angela Wanjiru wa Muriuki alias Ciru Muriuki lost her dad to COVID-19. A man she dearly honored, loved and cherished.

A man she still misses more than words can say; a man who would have turned 72 years on October 10, were he still alive.

Pain and agony that she wonders how long it will last.

Amid COVID-19 and strict health measures put in place, her dads send-off left a different mark in her life.

“Heh. Losing a father. Nothing prepares you for the pain. Nothing. I wonder if I’ll feel this agony forever. My father’s funeral was the worst experience of our lives.”

Remember, Ciru also contracted the virus and had to mourn her late dad in almost complete solitude.

I cannot think of anything worse,” she tweeted.

Another loss

It has been barely 4 months that the celebrated media personality was allowed to mourn her loss, and death has stricken once more.

Taking to her Twitter, the broadcast journalist mourned the loss of a beloved mother, a grand mum and an aunt – her fathers sister.

May their souls rest in eternal peace!

Former Churchill Show comedian David Kangogo, famously known as David The Student, has tested positive for Covid-19 just days after he had an altercation with a Caucasian couple in the United States of America.

The comedian, through his Facebook page, said he started feeling unwell and also exhibited the symptoms associated with the deadly virus on Friday before going for a test which turned positive.

“I got diagnosed with Covid-19. Now I am quarantined and I trust and believe I’ll get through this. Thank you all for the support I’ve been receiving. Thank you! Please stay safe, wear a mask, wash your hands and social distance,” he wrote.

Hᴇʏ ɢᴜʏs!

I ɢᴏᴛ ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsᴇᴅ ᴡɪᴛʜ ᴄᴏᴠɪᴅ 19 . I ɴᴏᴡ ᴀᴍ ǫᴜᴀʀᴀɴᴛɪɴᴇᴅ ᴀɴᴅ I ᴛʀᴜsᴛ ᴀɴᴅ ʙᴇʟɪᴇᴠᴇ I’ʟʟ ɢᴇᴛ ᴛʜʀᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜɪs! Tʜᴀɴᴋ…

Posted by David the Student on Monday, November 23, 2020

Kangogo, who relocated to the US in search of greener pastures in 2018, has been working as a Lyft driver.

Last week the comedian was in the news after an angry Lyft passenger hurled racial slurs at him after he asked the Caucasian couple who had requested for a ride to put on a mask.

In a disturbing video, which has since gone viral after it was shared by Al Jazeera, shows a passenger identified only as “Joe” erupting after Kangogo asked him to put his mask back on after taking it off during the ride.

The clip shows the man getting out of the car and unleashing verbal abuse toward the former comedian as his female companion looks on.

Kongogo then urged the man to keep abusing him as he keeps recording the incident.

David The Student told the couple to “just put on” their masks, but he wasn’t having it and even threatened to urinate inside the car, the video shows.

Kangogo, 30, told Newsweek the man ignored his first request to put his mask back on after taking it off during the ride. The company’s policy requires all passengers and drivers to don masks during the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said he called Lyft representatives following the incident and then went home.

“I couldn’t drive,” Kangogo told the outlet. “I was literally shaking.”

In a statement, Lyft confirmed the unidentified passenger had been permanently banned.

“There is no place for discrimination of any sort in the Lyft community, and this behavior is absolutely unacceptable,” the statement reads. “We have permanently removed the rider from the Lyft community and have been in touch with the driver to offer our support.”

The mother of Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung’u who passed away in the United States after a long illness was cremated in a private ceremony held on Thursday at Utica in New York.

Mama Victoria Mercy Nyaithiru succumbed to cancer in New York last week Sunday, according to a statement issued by the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU).

On Saturday, November 21, a memorial service was held virtually with Ms Ndung’u eulogising her mother, saying that she instilled a sense of responsibility that helped her become responsible as the firstborn in her family.

In the two hour ceremony that was broadcast on social media, the judge said she confided in her mother in both good and bad times.

“We would make many decisions together about their schooling. Over the years I embraced the role of a third parent. Our personalities complimented each other, we were both workaholics but you were soft-spoken while I was strong-willed, assertive and stubborn. We made an excellent team,” she said.

First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, who also attended the virtual memorial, eulogised her as a passionate and hardworking woman, who raised a distinguished family whose members have served this nation with distinction.

“She was a strong pillar for this country and mentored her children well. She did this because she believed that everyone needed to explore their gifts and realise their potential… her wise counsel will be missed by many,” she said.

Last week, in a message of condolence to the family, relatives and friends, President Uhuru Kenyatta described Mama Nyaithiru as a kind and hardworking woman who raised an outstanding family.

“Mama Victoria Nyaithiru was a God-fearing woman who believed that ultimately all good things are the result of a life of honesty, faith, and hard work,” said Uhuru.

Mr Kenyatta added that the reputation of the deceased could be seen in her children’s contribution to Kenya’s socio-economic transformation.

The head of state prayed to God to give the family of the departed matriarch fortitude and comfort at this difficult period of mourning.
