Machachari actress Wanjiku Mburu, popularly known as Mama Baha has finally spoken out after a blog claimed that she had succumbed to cancer.
Contrary to false reports published on two Kenyan blogs claiming she succumbed to cancer on Tuesday, October 1, the actress says she is well and alive.
According to K24 Digital, Pamela Wanjiru, the wife of Machachari director of photography, Mburu Kimani, is the one who passed on, and not Wanjiku Mburu the actress.
“I am well. The blogs, which falsely killed me, failed to get the name [of the deceased] right. It is unfortunate. My heart goes out to Mburu Kimani and his family for the loss of their loved one,” Mama Baha wa quoted by a local daily.
Rumors of her death comes shortly after Machachari show was cancelled from airing on Citizen TV following persistent pressure from the audience due to the age of the characters.Do you have any story you would like to share?
