Just last month, we got the news that Beth Mbaya aka Wanade, of the Mother-In-Law fame had been hospitalised. Get well soon messages flooded the internet as Kenyans wished her a quick and speedy recovery.

Today however, we got the sad news that Ruth, had lost the battle to cancer and had passed on. She had become a hosehold name thanks to her incredible performances in the local hit TV Show, Mother-in-law.

She is also the mother of the teen actor Baha, real name Kamau Mbaya and the knowzone presenter, Mungai Mbaya.

She has indeed left a mark in the local showbiz industry and the hearts of many.

We at SDE send our heartfelt condolences and may she Rest In Peace.
