Stella who was a follower of the Church of God died after refusing to be attended to by doctors while delivering her child since it's against the rules of their church.
Cecilia Mahinga, a health officer in Gatanga was informed by Stella's neighbours that she was in labour but wasn't willing to go to hospital.
Cecilia arrived at the home and took Stella to hospital quickly using an ambulance but when Stella arrived in hospital, she resisted being touched by any doctor. Her husband also ordered that his wife shouldn't be touched by medics.
The medics had to let her go to avoid further chaos at the hospital. Her case needed an emergency caesarian section.
Sadly, she died immediately after getting home.
Cecilia says Stella died out of ignorance and would still be alive if she agreed to be assisted.
"Alikufa Juu ya ujinga. If only she agreed to be assisted we wouldn't be here" Said Cecilia in part during the funeral.
Residents have now urged the government to ban that church so as to avoid more deaths.
