Senator's Wife Inks Touching Message to Raburu's Spouse

  • Nelius Mukami, wife to Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura on Friday, January 10, inked an emotional message to Mary Prude, who is married to Citizen TV news anchor Willis Raburu, after the loss of their daughter.

    Taking to social media, Mukami, who lost twins in 2017, comforted Prude and asked her to grieve as she saw fit.

    "The pain of losing a child is unimaginable and crushing. Grief is a natural reaction to loss; it is also the last act of kindness we can show to a loved one. With grief comes a lot of sadness, anger, guilt, fear, loneliness, blame and more than I can list. 

    "The grieving process is personal. Grieving the loss of a child is lonely, isolating and terrifying. You are scared of anything and everything. I am hoping my words today will be a tiny drop of comfort to your pain," she continued.

    She went ahead and passed her condolences to Prude and her husband, assuring them that time would heal their sorrows.

    "Give yourself time to mourn, be angry, bargain, repeat it all over and over again until you can finally emerge out of the darkness that has now swallowed you alive without growing afraid, anxious and impatient," she added.

    While using her own experience, Mukami disclosed that she had doubted God, when she went through the difficult situation.

    "We serve a mighty God; A God who can move mountains, but sometimes He doesn’t. It is hard to have faith in these doubtful moments. I have done it before, and so have many others; It is in our nature to panic, when we panic, we question God.

    "But our God is loving, Our God is faithful, and our God listens, so tell him, talk to Him, shout if you must, He can take it. Tell Him what you are feeling, the questions, the anger. He can take it. Take your fears and burdens to Him. God is on your side," she stated.

    On Wednesday, January 8, through Instagram, Prude penned an emotional message, revealing how friends and family had reached out to encourage and uplift her spirit. 

    "Everyone is so quick to tell me about God. What they don’t know is that every way I knew Him, He was tested and He didn’t prove Himself.

    "So as they say, you should know God for yourself, I now can say, I don’t know Him. And I don’t think I want to know Him coz He left me when I needed Him the most," Marya lamented.
