Former Tusker Project Fame winner Ruth Matete was on Tuesday grilled for six hours at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters over her husband’s death.

According to Citizen Digital, homicide detectives accompanied her to collect samples from the house which is now being treated as a crime scene.

The gospel musician had recorded another statement with DCI detectives four days ago.

Her husband, John Apewajoye, sustained burn injuries at the home on March 30 and was rushed to Shallom Hospital then transferred to the high dependency unit at Bellevue Hospital.

The 42-year-old pastor however succumbed to his injuries 12 days later.

Ruth announced his death on her Facebook page saying: “My husband Beloved John Apewajoye has gone to be with the Lord. I humbly ask for your prayers during this difficult time.”

They had been married for four months.

The singer has since deleted her social media pages.
