Kiambaa church fire icon breathes her last
July. 11, 2019
Elizabeth Wangui Kimunya, one of the oldest survivors of the Kiambaa church fire incident in the 2007-08 post-election violence will be buried on Friday.
But only if her family raised enough money to pay for her hospital bill and burial expenses by Thursday evening.
Wangui died last Saturday at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret. She had been suffering from depression, according to Phillip Kimunya, her only son who was 16 at the time of the Kiambaa church fire horror.
The photograph of a wailing Wangui outside the burning Assemblies of God Church with her hands raised, went viral internationally. She survived, but not 35 of her compatriots who had sought refuge in the house of God.
