Lawyer Paul Gicheru's Wife Reveals His Last Words Before Death

Ruth Nyambura, the late lawyer Paul Gicheru's wife, described her husband's final moments in an emotional tribute. Paul Gicheru passed away on September 26.

On Tuesday, October 4, Nyambura said during the requiem liturgy performed in Karen that the deceased held her hand and professed his love for her hours before his passing.

"On Monday before you went to be with the Lord, you held my hand and said to me 'Nobody will ever separate us'.

"Very unexpected at that moment," she eulogised. 

When Paul Gicheru appeared before the ICC on November 6, 2022, he did so via video link from the ICC Detention Center.

She went on to say that the spouse was a caring man who looked for their three kids as well as their extended family.

No one expected him to meet an early death on that terrible day, according to Nyambura, who claimed that his demise stunned them.

"Oh, how the blessings of our three great sons brought us joy and warmed our hearts. They will miss you so much.

"You always taught them that there are three things to fear and respect - God, our parents and the government of the day. We shall always remember this," she stated.

Alvin, Alex, and Annan, Gicheru's children, praised their father as the hero who constantly supported them in overcoming challenges.

"You have always prepared us by giving us the best of everything good. We will miss you dearly and treasure all our memories together. You will always be with us in everything that we do. 

"We love you done and hope to see you again," read their tribute.

Gicheru was discovered deceased on September 26 at his home in Karen. His death is the subject of inquiries.

Following an inconclusive postmortem performed on Friday of last week, the pathologist took more samples to the government chemist for a more thorough examination.
