NAIROBI, Kenya— Popular Gospel singer Kambua is mourning after losing her newborn baby, Malachi, just a few days after delivery.

The Rauka Show host shared the unfortunate news on her social media pages on Monday evening.

“What a privilege it has been carrying a life yet again. My little baby boy Malachi made a grand entrance into the world a few days ago. He was everything we hoped for, and more, much more. Perfect in every way. Malachi knew how much he was loved, and so he did all he could to stay with us.” Kambua wrote on Instagram.

She said her little angel fell ill and doctors did their best, however, the son did not make it through.

“With the help of a most dedicated team of doctors & nurses, our little baby fought, until Jesus healed him by taking him to Himself. Malachi is now free from pain, and any worldly care. Our tears fall freely because our hearts are broken beyond words,“ She added.

The Bado Nasimama hitmaker declared the tragic news will not shake their faith in God, rather they will continue firming faith in God.

“But our faith and hope remain unshaken because we have our trust in a dependable God. A good, good Father. We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him, a moment at a time.”

“Malachi Manundu Muthiga Mathu. You were deeply loved, and will forever be remembered. Your Father, your mommy, and your brother Nathaniel, will carry you in our hearts always 💛💛💛” She said.

Kambua asked her fans, close friends and relatives to bear with them as they process the loss, and will update them later.

“Please allow us some time to process all of this, we will respond to your calls and messages in due time.”

Malachi Manundu Muthiga Mathu was the second born of Kambua and husband Jackson Mathu. Their firstborn, Nathaniel Muhoro Mathu was born on August 10, 2019, after seven years in marriage.
