Ciru Muriuki requests financial assistance to provide a fitting farewell for fiancé Ouda

Media personality Ciru Muriuki is reaching out for financial support to give her fiancé, actor Charles Ouda, a respectable farewell. On Wednesday, the former BBC journalist shared a poster outlining how fans and celebrities can contribute to Charlie’s burial expenses. The poster, adorned in all black with gold and white accents, features a cheerful Charlie with his hand resting on his forehead, seemingly amused by something that made him burst into laughter.

“In loving memory of Charlie… Honoring the legacy! Join us in providing a dignified farewell for a cherished legend,” reads part of the post. Digital content creator and actress Foi Wambui, scriptwriter, movie producer, and director Abel Mutua, and emerging actor Kabugi are among the creatives who have shared Charlie’s fundraising poster.

Foi urged netizens to contribute whatever they could, acknowledging that funerals can be costly. “Funerals are hella expensive, and we really MUST give Charles a beautiful send-off. Please help the family by sending whatever contribution you can to the paybill number,” Foi wrote on her Instagram stories. She expressed disbelief, stating that everything still felt surreal, and she was struggling to accept the reality of her friend’s departure.
