Investigations into the death of singer Ruth Matete’s hubby underway

Almost a week after Kenyan singer Ruth Matete was accused of allegedly having a hand in her husband’s death, investigations have begun.

According to reports, detectives from the DCI’s Homicide unit on Tuesday (21.04.20) questioned the Gospel artist for hours in connection to the untimely death of her husband BelovedJohn Apewajoye.

They interrogated her at the headquarters of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations the following summons last week.

The detectives also went to Ms Matete’s home in Athi River, Machakos County to collect evidence to establish events that preceded Apewajoye’s death.

Ms Matete was accompanied by her father Mr Abel Amunga, lawyer Mr Robert Odanga and a female friend.

Apewajoye, a Nigerian, died in hospital after sustaining burns in the couple’s house in Athi River. The gas cylinder incident on March 30 was initially described as an accident by DCI detectives based at Athi River Police Station. It occurred on March 30 and he died on April 11, almost two weeks later.

In her statement on the accident, Ms Matete said Apewajoye was initially taken to Shallom Hospital and later transferred to Bellevue South and admitted to the high dependency unit.

On April 5, she said, he developed complications and was referred to KNH, where a nurse questioned Bellevue’s decision to admit a burns patient for a week knowing well that the hospital did not have a burns unit.

Ms Matete said KNH told them that Apewajoye had not been receiving enough water at Bellevue South and that this led to his kidney failure.

Meanwhile, Apewajoye’s post-mortem has been postponed to Thursday.
