Catherine Kasavuli’s son is appealing to Kenyans for help in offsetting medical bills that emanated from her treatment.
Martin Kasavuli , who is the late Kasavuli’s only child revealed this information to the Media Council of Kenya CEO and copied it to six media managers in the country.
According to Martin, the bill stood at Ksh 4 million at the time of his mother’s death.
“At the time of her passing away, she had accrued a cumulative hospital bill of Ksh4 million, being bills at both Kenyatta National Hospital and The Nairobi Hospital. We anticipate further bills at the funeral home and costs of interment which we can’t estimate now.”
He went on to ask that he hoped her former peers in the industry would join together in helping to pay the amount.
“It is with this mind that I write for your assistance in galvanizing her colleagues in the media fraternity, and the public to assist me clear the medical bills and give the late ‘Queen of Television’ a befitting farewell,” the statement added.
The statement added that the Mpesa Paybill Number – 8089700 and Account Number – Catherine Kasavuli had been set up to allow well-wishers to contribute their donations.
The late Catherine’s death was caused by cervical cancer which she fought bravely for 3 months before succumbing on Thursday this week.
