Citizen TV Rauka gospel show host Kambua and her husband Jackson Mathu are in mourning after losing their second born child.
The newly born son Malachi Manundu was just a few days old before he died.
In a statement on her social media pages on Monday, February 15, Kambua announced the demise of their son Malachi Manundu, who was born 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 stated
“With the help of a most dedicated team of doctors and nurses, our little baby fought, until Jesus healed him by taking him to Himself,” said kambua with a heavy heart.
Kambua went on to ask her fans to give the family time to heal and promised she will answer all questions from her fans in due time.
“We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him, a moment at a time,” she added.
Through her pregnancy period, Kambua never shied off to share her pregnancy journey with her fans on social media.
The singer announced her second pregnancy in November 2020, after which she released a song titled Neema, just to express her gratitude to God for the beautiful gift.

Kambua had previously weathered a heavy storm of childlessness in her marriage for 7 years.
In a past interview, Kambua praised her husband for standing alongside her when the society blamed her for failing to sire a child.
“It’s normal to feel a certain level of disappointment but I’m blessed to have a very strong husband because as much as society blamed me, he carried that burden with me,” Kambua said in a previous interview.
“A woman with a child is…a woman. A woman without a child is STILL a woman. ‘Barren’ is not her name; ‘Childless’ is not her identity either. She is whole. Complete. Lacking nothing. No matter the season she’s in, SHE. IS. ENOUGH.” Kambua recently stated
The couple would later be blessed with a son Baby Nathaniel after several years of waiting.
