TV actress Maureen Wanza was laid to rest a few months back after she bled to death while giving birth in Kilifi county.
“She bled to death. Unfortunately, her baby also died minutes later,” Ashiners Films CEO Ann Hamburg said.
Maureen was a familiar face in local TV productions, including Sumu and Almasi.
Comic Gerald Langiri paid tribute.
He wrote, “To an avid fan, to lose a celebrity is one thing but to lose a celebrity you knew and called a friend is a whole different thing altogether. *sigh* Just received sad news that Maureen Wanza and her baby have passed away. She was giving birth in a hospital in Kilifi and both mother and child are no more. Condolences to her family, friends and especially her colleagues at Ashiner Pictures where she called home as well.
“Maureen will be best remembered for her role as Sasha in the Swahili programme Sumu, which she got nominated for best lead actress in a TV drama at Kalasha awards 2015, and for her role as Laiki on Cheche. Another soul has gone too soon.
Rest with the angels.”
