I have lost over 50 kgs in the last three
Years. Everything is hanging and weak. Walking is a problem with pains all over. Doctor says I must add 30 kgs then lose it as I exercise and firm up. The irony of life. I was not even losing weight intentionally! I allowed life to get the better of me. Learn from my mistakes.
Abura, who was admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital on Thursday October 13 and was undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness, died today (Thursday 20) at 6pm.
A source close to the family reveals that she had earlier in the day been transferred to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after her condition worsened. Fellow songbird and friend Suzzana Owiyo had paid her a visit, a day before she died, and described her condition as unstable. “It is unfortunate that we have lost one of the local greatest talent. May God rest her soul in peace,” said Owiyo who is currently in Mombasa.
Her private rural residence is in Koru, Kisumu County.
May God Rest her Soul in Eternal Peace.
