An autopsy report has eventually established the real cause of the death of pastor John Apewejoye, singer Ruth Matete’s late husband.
Government pathologist Johansen Oduor has stated ‘Beloved John’ as fondly known died of multiple organ failure.
The pastor died on April 12 while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital over a purported gas explosion.
Before being referred to KNH, Beloved John had been admitted to Bellevue hospital where he was said to have suffered 40 percent of burns, an assertion that medics at KNH negated.
Ruth Matete, however, faulted Bellevue for its practitioners’ negligence that led to his husband’s demise. She filed a complaint against Bellevue through her lawyer Robert Odaga.
Back in Nigeria, the pastor’s manager suspected Ruth had a hand in the death of her husband given how dramatic and chaotic their union had been.
The manager said Ruth had on many occasions been violent to John and there exist chances that she stabbed him in what might have been their routine scuffle.
Detectives have grilled the gospel singer twice regarding the murder.
