Six years after the death of her dad, Kambua says the one thing she wishes for the most is that he was able to meet and see her son, Nathaniel.
Professor Manundu was the founder of Manundu Herbal Clinics, at the time of his death Kambua had not yet become a mother.
Taking to her social media to express her grief Kambua penned
‘6 years ago today, my Father went to be with the Lord. It has taken me years to heal and fully come to terms with the loss.
Grief is like unfamiliar, uncharted waters than no one can fully prepare you for.
Grief is multilayered; just when you think it’s over, it reveals itself in a new light.
I have grieved the fact that he never got to meet my beautiful baby boy.’
I didn’t know I would be sitting in the ‘waiting room’ for 7 years, Kambua narrates how she waited for her baby
‘I’ve grieved my fading memory, guilted myself for forgetting things I should remember about dad.
But I will never forget the sound of his booming laugh, nor the sparkle in his eyes, or the warmth of his hands…
Just as I will never forget how cold they were before he breathed his last.’
Kambua added that it has taken her years to understand grief, after all it is a process.
‘It has taken me many years to accept and understand that both grief and my hope in Christ can indeed co-exist.
And this hope in no way nullifies the pain- it gives it purpose.
God writes our stories, and in Him nothing is lost. Our present pain and suffering is nothing compared to the glory that will be revealed in us.
I am grateful that my father’s legacy points to Jesus. Keep resting in glory my Papa. 09/04/2014. 💛’
