HUBBY'S DEATH

Matete had previously not posted any pictures of her baby bump on social media as she had deactivated all her social media accounts following the tragic death of her husband, John Apewajoye, in a fire accident at their home in April.

Her husband's death sparked off a prolonged controversy with Matete only being allowed to bury her husband after three months.

The Nigerian Embassy had initially barred Matete from burying her husband until investigations into the circumstances in which he died were complete.

At the end of three months, Matete was left with a huge mortuary fee and had to appeal to Kenyans for help in settling debt.

Matete and the late Apewajoye got married in November 2019 in a ceremony that was only attended by close friends and family members.
