The family of celebrated news anchor Catherine Kasavuli has released a funeral programme which highlights several events that will take place before the deceased is laid to rest.
The programme that has been released shows that fundraising will be held at the United Kenya Club on Saturday, January 7, 2023.
Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi will be the chief guest at Kasavuli’s fundraising.
The family is seeking the help of well-wishers to offset an outstanding Ksh4 million bill accrued during Kasavuli's stay and treatment in 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.
Kasavuli's remains 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.
The late journalist's burial will take place the same Saturday at her home in Zululu, Vihiga County after the funeral service at Tigoi Primary School.
Kasavuli passed away on December 29, 2022, aged 60 at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after battling cervical cancer.
She was admitted in hospital since October 26, 2022.
In November, colleagues and friends in the media industry mobilised people to donate blood for urgent transfusion after she was admitted at KNH.
Kasavuli's employer KBC appealed for blood donation as she is admitted to Kenyatta hospital's Private wing.
