Maureen Wanza

Many people didn’t know about her pregnancy as she chose to keep that part of her life private from the public light. It, therefore, comes as a shock to many the circumstances that have lead to her death.

For those who knew Maureen, they’d describe her as a bubbly, full of life human being who’d lit a room whenever she walks in and always ready to provide a helping hand.

Her on-screen persona was however different. She was mainly cast as the “feisty and evil woman” something very far from who she was.  This saw Maureen rise to the star that she was known for; a Very talented actress that the Kenyan film industry has lost.

Mombasa based TV production company, Ashiner Pictures, is where Maureen mostly practiced her craft with Titles Like Almasi, Sumu,, and Cheche where Maureen played the character of Laiki, under her belt.

Another young talent taken away, Another soul gone too soon. Rest with the angles Maureen and your child.

This is sad.
