karenEarly this week, the country was hit with news of the passing of Karen Knaust’s sister, Ruth in a tragic road accident. Ruth Wangeci Knaust, a vocal activist and human rights campaigner succumbed to injuries sustained in the Saturday night accident on Valley Road.

Ruth and her two sisters had just attended Eric Omondi’s Untamed Show at the Bomas of Kenya.

The K24 news anchor has mourned her sister’s death on social media in a heart wrenching post.

She wrote, “My heart bleeds…. I don’t know what to do without u #ruth I’m trying to be strong, for the girls,… Lord help me”


Ruth will be laid to rest this Saturday 5th at their rural home in Ngariama, Kirinyaga County. A memorial service will be held a day before on Friday 4th at the Montezuma Monalisa Chapel of Rest along Mbagathi Way.


Preparations for the send off have already been made, including the Limos below that will be used for the send off.
