Inooro TV news anchor and gospel singer Winnie Rose Wangui has reminisced about losing her mother on the day she was launching her music video.


She says after her marriage failed 59 days after the wedding, her mother died.

“I wanted to build her a house with the money I would collect from my music launch, which was a few days away, when she passed on,” she narrated.

“She did not wait. That was sad and painful,” she emotionally said.

Her mother took long in the theatre, and the family never understood what went on. “My dad chose not to follow up to know the cause of her death,” she said.

Winnie says she comes from a humble background and her mother struggled so hard to make sure she succeeds in life, the reason she loved her so much.

“I used to cook githeri and beans and that is how I earned money and paid my first media school fees,” she said.

“I could not call mum to say I was struggling in Nairobi, but the day I told her, she sold her only cow and sent someone to pay the school fees for me.”
