KBC’s John Jacob has confirmed that President William Ruto has cleared the hospital bill which had accumulated during the late veteran journalist Catherine Kasavuli’s admission in hospital.
In a tweet, Kioria expressed gratitude to the Head of State for helping offset the bill.
“Great thanks to our President who has waived the hospital bill incurred by my colleague Catherine Kasavuli. May her soul continue to rest in peace,” he wrote.
Earlier, the family of Kasavuli had released a funeral programme highlighting several eevens before including fundraising that was held at the United Kenya Club on Saturday, January 7, 2023.
The family had sought the help of well-wishers to offset an outstanding Ksh4 million bill accrued during Kasavuli’s stay and treatment in the hospital.
A requiem mass for the late journalist will be held on Thursday, January 12, 2023, at the Friends International Church along Ngong Road in Nairobi.
The body of Kasavuli will then be transported to Vihiga county where the final service will take place at her rural home at Tigoi Primary School on Saturday, January 14 before the burial at her home in Zululu, Vihiga County the same day.
Catherine passed away on December 29, 2022, aged 60 at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after battling cervical cancer. She had been admitted at the hospital since October 26, 2022.
