The death of a former Kameme FM presenter in Seattle, US, has raised more questions than answers.
A report by Inooro TV indicated that Jedidah Wambui Weru, known to her friends as Mima, passed away in December 2021. However, the cause of her death still remains unclear.
According to Wambui’s family, she moved to the US in 2018 in search of greener pastures. She was successful as she started working as a community health administrative assistant immediately.
While in the US, she fell in love with a white man, and after courting for a year, the couple tied the knot on August 25, 2020.
After settling down with the man, who was never introduced to her family, Wambui stopped communicating with her daughter, mother and siblings.
Wambui’s sister, Florence Wanjiru, revealed that the man denied her access to her mobile phone and would often monitor her calls when she was allowed to speak to someone on the phone.
On December 22, 2021, she called her family to wish them a happy season and that was the last time they spoke.
Two days later, a friend from the US called them and informed them that Wambui was sick. Days later, her white husband called her family and informed them that Wambui had died. He also informed them that she had been cremated.
When she inquired why he had not informed the family about her death earlier he said it was not that important.
However, she offered to send the ashes to her family but her daughter, Esther Nyawira, refused since she was not given an opportunity to pay her last respect.
Further, Nyawira revealed that she asked the man if she could travel to the US to see where her mother lived but he declined.
The family suspects that the man is lying about Wambui’s body and have called on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to help them bring her body back home.
Wambui worked at Kameme FM between 2000 and 2012. She joined Interconsumer Products Ltd in 2015 and later proceeded to Weru TV where she worked from 2016 to 2017.
