The wife of the man who drowned in the Juja River last week has written a heartwarming tribute to her late husband.

The man who drowned at a dam in Juja with a female companion while in their car was identified as 39 year old Tirus Maina Gikonyo by his wife Sarah Kiiru.

On January 19, Sarah told Standard media that their day started very well.

" We woke up as usual, made for him breakfast then he told me he was going to do biashara"

Titus Maina Gikonyo was a businessman. She called him later to find out how he was doing and what he wanted to eat for dinner.

Kiiru while speaking to Citizen Digital recalled that before the incident was reported, he had called her to say he was going for an important meeting, to explain any delay going home. 

Afterwards, every other message and call went unanswered.

“My husband left home for work on Monday morning, and we spoke in the evening around 7 pm. He said he was in Juja for a business meeting, I asked what he would want for dinner and that was the last time we spoke,” Kiiru shared more about their conversation.


“I called and sent him messages but he was unreachable.

Taking to her Tiktok on Monday January 23, the wife under the user name Pretty_sarah23 captioned several pictures of him "RIP hunny , it is well, till we meet again I'll always love you dia"

"till we meet again my love 😭😭💞🫂🫂" she added.
