Karobia has given us his blessing to share this further update about the loss of his beloved Wangui.
Pray for our family following the painful loss of my wife, Wangui Karobia. Wangui collapsed last Friday morning, 3rd June 2011 in our family home at Riruta in Nairobi and was confirmed dead on arrival at a nearby hospital. The cause of death has been established. The post-mortem done on Saturday, 4th June showed that Wangui died of a possible cardiac arrest caused by a condition she has been having for some time known as Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) – a blood clot mainly affecting the large veins in the lower leg and thigh. The clot moved through her bloodstream, and stuck in her lungs leading to sudden death on the fateful morning.
We have three children, Njogu Kaggia aged 7 years, Biko Karuku aged 5 and Kwame Murage who is 3 years old.
Meetings and fellowships are being held between Monday 6th June (yesterday) and Thursday, 9th June between 5.30pm and 7.00pm at our home; at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi; and in the home of Wangui’s parents in Donholm estate.
The funeral service will be held on Friday, 10th June 2011 from 11:30am at St. Paul’s Parish in South C near the Junction of Mbagathi Road and Lang’ata Road. The burial will follow immediately after the service in Lang’ata Cemetery.
