Comedian and Kiss FM morning show co-host Jalango today revealed on Mpasho Live that the death of Lady Maureen who was a close friend of his was devastating.
Speaking to Kalondu Musyimi on the weekly Mpasho Live session Jalango said,
“I was very close to lady Maureen she performed in all my shows at the Luo Festival apart from the last one when she got sick.”
“It is a very, very sad situation the burial is on Saturday but due to the situation with COVID-19 and the regulations, the list of mourners is limited, to her close family and friends to attend.”
The organisers of the burial of Luo Ohangla music queen Lady Maureen are requesting for police control to help enforce COVID-19 rules in the funeral along the Tanzania border.
Maureen Achieng, as she was known, will be buried in their family home at Kopanga village along the border of Kenya and Tanzania, in Suna West constituency with fans expected to cross over the porous border.
Kenya and Tanzania closed their borders for fear of the spread of the virus.
Maureen’s brother Carlos Odira and a family spokesman told the Star that said so far they continue to receive support from the musician’s fans and supporters.
However, their biggest priority is that they have a peaceful send-off.
“As a family we were requesting for more to support for the burial programme, which will extend to have a peaceful send-off. We are working with authorities to follow order and want mourners to follow suit,” Odira said.
