Ruth Nyambura, the late lawyer Paul Gicheru’s widow, described her husband’s final moments in an emotional tribute. Paul Gicheru passed away on September 26.
On Tuesday, October 4, Nyambura said during the requiem liturgy performed in Karen that the deceased held her hand and professed his love for her hours before his passing.
“On Monday before you went to be with the Lord, you held my hand and said to me ‘Nobody will ever separate us’.
“Very unexpected at that moment,” she eulogised.
She went on to say that the spouse was a caring man who looked for their three kids as well as their extended family.
No one expected him to meet an early death on that terrible day, according to Nyambura, who added that his demise stunned them.
Alvin, Alex, and Annan Gicheru, who are his children, praised their father as the hero who always supported them in overcoming challenges.
Gicheru was discovered lifeless on September 26 at his home in Karen. His death is the subject of inquiries.
Following an inconclusive postmortem performed on Friday of last week, the pathologist took more samples to the government chemist for a more thorough examination.
