#BoldAndCandidWithRuthMatete,” shared Ruth Matete.
The Tusker Project Fame Winner has been inactive on all social media platforms, since April when she deactivated the accounts, in what was seen as shielding herself from negativity while Mourning her husband BelovedJohn Apewajoye.
Pastor Apewajoye's Burial
Matete was allowed to bury her Hubby at Langa’ta Cemetery on July 23, 2020. Apewajoye passed on in April after suffering serious burns from an alleged LPG explosion.
However, the singer was barred from burying her husband by the Nigerian embassy, on grounds that they wanted to ascertain the actual cause of his death before he was laid to rest. The stand-off between the embassy and Matete’s family is what resulted to the body of Pastor Apewajoye staying at KNH Mortuary for almost three months.
On April 23, Chief government Pathologist Johansen Oduor revealed that Matete’s husband Pastor BelovedJohn Apewajoye died due to multiple organ failure after suffering 60 per cent burns.
