Terryanne Chebet

Renowned Kenyan business journalist Terryanne Chebet is mourning.

Through a post on social media, the Fanaka TV CEO revealed she has lost her brother-in-law, Eric Ouma.

Ouma was married to Chebet’s elder sister Jerop, with whom they have three children.

According to Chebet, the late Ouma was her mother’s favourite son whose sense of humour amazed the family.

“When my sister first told us about a young man who wanted to marry her, we were so keen to meet him because we knew he was a lucky man. @ericouma asked Jerop to be his wife and he quickly became my mother's favourite son, and we gained an amazing and humorous brother.”

She further revealed that Ouma passed away after a long illness while expressing how he will be missed.

“Yesterday, after a long illness bravely borne, Eric went to be with the Lord. We will sorely miss you, you went too soon but God needed you home. Jerop and the kids will deeply miss you.

“We may never understand why, but we keep our trust in the Most High. Thanking all of you who stood by us as we fund-raised for Eric's treatment in India last year and thank you to the many of you who kept praying and keeping Jerop's family in your thoughts.

“May God keep you and bless you!” wrote Chebet.
