In an emotional tribute to her deceased husband, she made it clear that unlike in other cases where nasty scenes are witnessed, they would coexist in harmony to make the deceased happy, just as they have always done.

“Let nobody come between us. Caroline came after me, anajua nilikuwa nimemtengenezea mzee. Caroline don’t cry, I’m here. Ile kiatu John alikuwa amevaa, nitajifanya mwananume this time (sic)” Sabina said.

Unlike in common cases where widows and concubines (popularly called mpango wa kando) battle it out for the property of their husbands, the two vowed to continue living in peace.

The funeral service is currently underway with several leaders present to give the musician a befitting send-off.

Among leaders present for the funeral ceremony are; Murang'a Women Rep, Sabina Chege, CSs Joe Mucheru (ICT), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture), James Macharia (Transport), former Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe, and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth.

The deceased recorded 375 songs in his career that spanned several decades and saw him rise to the very top of Kenya’s entertainment industry.

Most recently, drama preceeded the cremation of former Kibra MP Ken Okoth when Nairobi MCA Anne Thumbi with whom he had a son moved to court and halted the process.

What followed was a legal tussle before the family moved in to resolve the issue.

Okoth was eventually burried in the absence of hs mother, and son and Thumbi who had moved to court seeking to be involved in the process.
