What the late Dr Gakara's wife did during burial that left mourners in surprise.

The late Dr Gakara is one of the most respected Dr who was an obstetrician and gynaecologist, he died at age of 54 years on September 22 at Nakuru Level Five Hospital. The late Dr is suspected to have injected himself with the same concoction of drug he used to inject his children with.

Winnie Odhiambo who is the wife to late , brought mourners to tears as she read stories to her children the moments before they were interred. She said that they never went to bed before they prayed, and she was the one reading them bedtime stories. Their favourite stories were the ‘Donkey in a well’, the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ and ‘The Six Piglets’. How shall my weekends be,” said Winnie amidst the mourners.

She described her daughter as an upcoming doctor and her son as a future captain. “It is a big loss that will take a long time to heal the wound.

She described her husband as industrious and visionary man who never believed in shortcut. He was such a beautiful soul, such a beautiful character. "Rest in peace my husband"she said.

Gakara’s daughter from a previous marriage, Agnes Njeri, expressed her love for her father who continued to support her despite the separation from her mother. “You are the best father I could ever have. You have been my source of strength. Thank you for being present in my life. You ensured that I had the best education,” said Njeri.

She also mourned her step-siblings, with whom she said she had made great memories.

“I have so much to say, but I don’t have words to express them. Dylan and Hailey, I cherished you so much. Life can be unfair sometimes, you have left us this early,” said Njeri.

People didn't expect the late Doctor could have strength of even narrating the story of her children and to her husband. It was so good to hear great words from Burton Njoroge of how they will continue to support the late Dr wife As a family, we shall remain united even in this situation,” said Peter Gakara, the doctor’s brother.
