Celebrated TV business journalist Terryanne Chebet is bereaved. Chebet lost her brother-in-law, Eric Ouma, who at some point sought treatment in India, on Wednesday.

The Fanaka TV chief executive officer made the announcement on her Instagram page with a moving tribute.

“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,” wrote Chebet.

She recalled her family’s reaction when her sister Jerop disclosed that she was getting married.


“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,” she wrote.

“@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 added: “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!”

Chebet’s BFF Jacque Maribe is facing murder investigation. She and her fiancé Joseph Irungu alias Joe Jowi are prime suspects in the murder of 26-year-old businesswoman Monica Kimani at her Kilimani estate apartment more than a week ago.
