Gospel artist and Citizen TV show host Kambua Mathu is mourning the loss of her newborn son, days after his birth.
The Rauka presenter on Monday, February 15 shared the heartbreaking news via her Instagram page.
“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 wrote.
The gospel songbird was appreciative of the fact that she had the privilege to carry a life yet again, despite him not staying alive for long after being born. He, however, developed complications and died, despite efforts by doctors to save his life.
“Malachi is now free from pain, and any worldly care. Our tears fall freely because our hearts are broken beyond words. But our faith and hope remain unshaken because we have our trust in a dependable God,” she added.
She eulogized the young one as a perfect baby who made a grand entrance into the world and was perfect in every way.
“We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him, a moment at a time,” she continued.
Kambua in December 2020 announced that she was pregnant with her second born, one year and three months after she welcomed her first.
She was responding to queries on December 18, 2020, while revealing that a section of people sought her wisdom and her tips on how she conceived in such a short time following the birth of her firstborn son, Nate.
She was understanding of their concerns as most of them were struggling to cope with the reality of being a new parent in quick succession.
“Allow me to say this for starters: When you’ve had to wait in line for even half as long as I did, trust me, your perspective on many things changes. Not to say that I haven’t experienced my own level of anxiety, I have. But can you imagine what it feels like to literally see God change the script of your life?
“My babies are nothing short of miracles. Only God could do that. So I thank him every day for honoring me this way. It’s for the same reason that I truly don’t care if I get a boy, a girl, twins, triplets…all those (concerns) are superficial to me. My desire was to have children. Period. Healthy, children,” she narrated in her social media pages.
She disclosed in an interview with Parents Magazine in March 2020 that she was dealing with online trolls that attacked her for the fact that she was childless in her initial six years of marriage. She was thus under surmounted pressure to sire children after her wedding.
The trolls hit Kambua hard to the point she had to seclude herself from her friends, who were mostly parents at the time.
Most of the topics revolved around their children, which were too much for her to take.
“I changed my prayer for God to bless me in the way that He chose to.
“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 assured.
