Samuel Gitau (pictured) died on October 8, 2019 in Toronto.
A find raising for Samuel Gitau Muchiri was held at 1695 Dufferin street at St. Chad Anglican church on Sunday.
Speaking at the event, the family spokesperson Sarah Gitau, the deceased elder sister thanked the community and all friends for support since the passing of their brother.
Miss Gitau said they have little knowledge of the source of the fake and misleading post seeking anyone who might know the deceased Samuel.
“It is wrong for anyone to post false informations before verifying,” Miss Gitau said adding that the fake news caught their mother who is in Kenya in a surprise after learning about it from friends.
Mysteriously, whoever come up the original photo circulating in the social media may not be aware who was the other person photographed with Gitau, but its now clear that it was Mr Were who is the chairman of the funeral service.
The post that circulated on social media earlier claimed that Samuel had no relatives in Toronto despite his elder sister being the first to find out about his death.
Gitau will be buried in Pickering, one of the small towns in Toronto.
Funeral services will be held on 25th October 660 keneday road. Proceed to meadow cemetary in Pickering.
In attendance were various religious leaders from the Greater Toronto Area GTA, M/s Rev Ann and John Muhia , Pastor Joan Wairimu, M/s Reverend Mulongo, gospel singers Sarah Kariuki and RosePeter. Fr. Mbugua among others.
