Busia Nurse who died while giving birth laid to rest in Bunyala

Emotions and sorrow marked  the burial of Busia County Teaching and
Referral Hospital  Newborn Unit Nurse,  Risper  Mathayo Sibeyo, 30,
who was laid to rest onFriday at Lunyofu village in Bunyala South
ward.
Risper who was employed by the County Government in May, 2015 was the
wife to Funyula Sub County Administrator  David Sibeyo. She died on
September 2 after delivery of  Fred-Praise through caesarean.
Mourners  described  Risper as a strong willed lady  who spoke less
and acted more. She had enrolled for her master degree in midwifery
with Mt Kenya University, a dream she has died  before achieving.
Busia First Lady Judy Ojaamong  said it was sad to loser Risper at
such a tender, adding that the Beyond Zero campaign she is initiating
in the county will ensure that no woman  should die while giving
birth.
The deceased husband  David Sibeyo said she will rally behind the
First Lady to ensure that  no women in Busia County should die while
bringing another life but to make their fortunes better.
Deputy Governor Kizito Wangalwa  said it was a double blow  for the
county, adding that Risper lived a fast paced life having climbed
academic ladder despite coming from poor background.
County Executive Committee Member for Health Maurice Siminyu  Risper’s
death has shocked the medical fraternity  and ruled out any foul play
in her death.
Risper’s mother, Decima Nambiro said her daughter  was a good farmer
who planted many trees. ” To give her a befitting send off I had to
cut one of her trees to be used for preparing meals for the mourners.”
Members of the County Assembly Ernest Obola (Mayenje ward),
Wilberforce Sande (Bwiri), Fred Musirimba (Bunyala North) and John
Obwogo (Nangina) said Risper was a down to earth  person and prayed
that David will get a partner of similar character in future.
Over 60 nurses and three doctors attended  the burial of their
colleague. Others in attendance included Public Service CEC Bernadette
Muyomi,  eight chief officers  and  hundreds of mourners.
