The Kenyan film fraternity is in mourning following the death of seasoned Swahili actress Pretty Mutave, who is best known for her roles in local drama series Maza and Aziza.
The unexpected news of her demise was shared by Citizen TV’s Rashid Abdalla through his official Instagram page.
“ #sisemikitu Japo kazi ya Mungu haina makosa lakini msiba hauna mazoea. @prettymutave kipaji chako kikawe nuru kwa malaika. Mola ailaze roho yako pema peponi Inshallah. Heshima na kipaji chako vitadumu milele.”Rashid wrote.
