Finally Gospel artist Ruth Matete has been allowed to bury her husband.

Matete was allowed to take the body of his husband a Nigerian John Olakami Apewajoye from the Kenyatta national hospital and bury him at the Langata cemetery in Nairobi.

The death of Olakami was marred by controversies with Matete accused of killing her husband.

However, Matete defended herself saying her husband was involved in a home accident where gas cylinder burst inside their home in Nairobi caused his death.

“Please allow me to mourn my husband in peace,” he once told critics.

Olakami’s body has been lying at the Kenyatta National Hospital since April 11.

Matete rose to fame after winning the ‘Tusker project fame’ season 5 in 2012 and bagged a whopping 5 million Kenya shillings.
