Media personality Ciru Muriuki has shared more details about her relationship with the late Kenyan actor Charles Ouda.

In a heartfelt letter addressed to her late fiancé, the 41-year-old media personality poured out her emotions while expressing the pain she was feeling after Charles’ death put an end to her wedding plan and aspirations to be a wife.

“My love, I can scarcely believe that I am writing this. Not in the year that you and I were supposed to become man and wife."

Expressing the depth of their connection, Ciru described Charli as her strength, her cheerleader, and her closest confidant. She reflected on the profound impact he had on her life, emphasizing his unwavering love and support.

Describing Charli as a man who cared deeply about others, Ciru highlighted his passion, creativity, and generosity. She praised his talents both on and off the stage, portraying him as a mentor and a visionary.

Despite the pain of their separation, Ciru vowed to carry Charli’s love with her always, until they are reunited once more.

"Travel safe, my sweet, eternal love. I will love you until I join you."

The two announced their engagement in September 2023.

With tears in her eyes, Ciru recounted the unforgettable night when Charli proposed to her.

“I am almost 42 years old and I have never been loved like that. The night he asked me to marry him, we were at his house and I was wearing torn leggings and his t-shirt and he got down on one knee and I cried and to this day, those are the most beautiful nights of my life,” Ciru said. 

Charles Ouda died on the night of Saturday, February 3, 2024.

A requiem mass for the deceased was held at All Saints Cathedral on Thursday, February 15, 2024, before the body was taken to Kariokor Crematorium for last rites.
