An elderly Kenyan couple who were married for over 76 years have reportedly died 6 hours apart.
The couple reportedly got married traditionally in 1946. Tuwei died at the age of 107, while Maritim was aged 100.
It was reported that as their time came on Friday, July 23, Ruth passed on around 9pm followed by Tuwei at 2am.
David who is the fifth son of the couple revealed that their parents died as they had wished while still alive.
They have always maintained that their deaths will be unique in such a way that both of them will die at the same time, their stand on these sentiments did not mean a lot to our family because we knew they were joking about the matter with dad always insisting that if he happened to die, he will be ‘accompanied’ by his wife, the reality of their untimely demise has hit us hard.
He narrated emotionally how their mother requested to be accompanied outside at night before dying.
While outside, she began shaking massively before dying. Her demise saw immediate family members around her break into wails that attracted the attention of our father who was inside the house. We had to lie to him that our mother had fallen sick and has been rushed to hospital but stable in health.
The two love birds will be laid to rest on Wednesday, August 4, at their Megun home.
