Wake me up from this dream - Bridget Achieng.
Sharing a picture from the funeral, the Nairobi Diaries' star wrote “Someone should wake me up from this dream. Mum are you gone for real?”
She then went on to share more photos of the emotional day.
Bridget’s mum was laid to rest about two weeks after she broke the sad news on social media.
“It is with deep sorrow and extensive heartache that I must accept the will of God. Dear Mama, Rest in Power. Truly heavy news to me and my family. Love you Mama Queen of my Heart. It is well... mum is like you were waiting to just see Sekani? (Bridget’s newborn),” Bridget wrote.
Before her mum was laid to rest, the grief-stricken socialite had asked fans and well-wishers to help her raise funds so that she could accord her mother a befitting sendoff. Bridget disclosed that she was caught off-guard by her mum’s death and didn’t have any funds ready as she had just given birth.
“This really got the entire family off-guard. The death was sudden and we didn’t expect it. The sickness had gone on for quite a while but we had kept it within my close friends and family members as we kept our faith that she would eventually recover. The entire bill for the burial is Sh700, 000. So far, we have managed to raise Sh100, 000 and so you can see the deficit we have to cover before the burial next week. I’m appealing to everyone that can help us give her an honourable send-off to assist,” she told Pulse Magazine in a phone interview.
