Machachari director Mburu Kimani’s wife Mary Mukiri Mburu lost her battle with liver cancer on Tuesday night last week. Her burial service was today.
She died while undergoing treatment at Texas Cancer Centre on Mbagathi Road.
Speaking to Word Is on the phone last week, Mburu said,
“She was diagnosed with lung cancer six months ago. She died while going through chemotherapy. We don’t understand why lung cancer, yet she was a non-smoker.”
Adding, “It hurts to see someone who was healthy and okay die just like that.” Mary’s 10-year-old child was an actor in the kids’ show ‘Machachari’.
Mburu also said that dealing with a cancer patient wasn’t easy. ”
You have to be stronger for them. Cancer leaves one malnourished and drains your pocket,” he said. Mary died aged 40. The pictures from her funeral service are below;
