Tv actress was laid to rest on Saturday at her parents home in Kilifi.
Carolyne Rita Mutua, a filmmaker paid tribute to Maureen Wanza who died during childbirth. Pundits claim that the nurses strike contributed to her death.
“We have been soo accustomed to watching you on screen to make the program shine in every program you acted,” Carolyne wrote on Facebook, “You would bring the audience to the edge of their seat with your epic skills,and now unashamedly I state that you were a significant actress in this industry. I celebrate you Kelitu… We will miss you mostly by your son Prince and your fans, but we will hold on to the beautiful memories we created.”
Maureen’s co-star, Ken Ambani added, “It’s that time we lay you to rest. I know you in a better place… I celebrate you and shall always cherish the times God granted us to share you. Fare thee well Maureen Wanza my friend.”
Maureen was loved by many. One of her last social media posts is very telling.
It is like she predicted her death.
here is what she wrote,
You made Love to your Wife one Night and left Her the next Morning without looking back. You Were in search for the Greener Pasture.
You left her all alone for 9 months. Your wife got Pregnant that night. And for the next 9 months she was all Alone In the Cold.
She first Noticed Her Body changing,
And then the Doctor said she is Pregnant.
The News gave Her Joy but Sadness filled her Heart as She was longing to sleep in your Arms. She wanted You to be there when your Baby starts Kicking inside Her Belly.
But all She got was Your Voice on the Phone.
So many times She cried.
She could not prepare her Meals.
Sometimes she will Sleep all Day with Body Pains as the Symptoms took hold of Her and sometimes She Will Vomit throughout the Night.
She will Wake up Weak and Exhausted.
She will force herself to Cook but after Cooking.
She won’t feel like eating anymore.
All she needed was You to be by Her side.
To Make Her Smile.
To Rub Her Belly and Listen to Her when she talks about how She is Feeling.
To take her out.
To to walk with her and keep her bed warm.
After going through the pains of Post-Mother hood, On that Fateful day, at the Hospital, in the Labour Room, All She could say was your Name due to the Pains, Sufferings and Sadness She Faced.
Suddenly something went wrong.
She died with the Baby.
You are to be Blamed !!
My Brothers Always Take Care of your Woman Especially when She is Pregnant.

To All The pregnant Women out there, you will not Die on the Day of Bountiful Joy.
You will live to Raise your Child in Happiness and good Health.

LET US ALL TYPE **AMEN** TO CLAIM IT !!”
May she rest with the angels.
