It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Willys Kamanu Kihato of Gatia-ini village, Kangari, Murang’a County.
Kamanu was 24 years old. He attended Gaichanjiru High School and later on went to Mt. Kenya University where he graduated with a degree in Purchasing and Supplies Management.
He was working for One Way Cleaning Services Ltd as an Assistant Procurement Officer prior to his untimely death.
On October 10th 2017 Kamanu started complaining of a headache and he was rushed to Kenol hospital.
Unfortunately, he fell into a coma while undergoing treatment. He was immediately transferred to Meridian Equator Hospital on October 21st 2017 where he was diagnosed with Acute TB Meningitis.
Willys spent the last three months of his life in the hospital undergoing treatment.
On January 1st 2018, Willys Kamanu passed away in his hospital bed leaving behind a hospital bill of over Ksh 4 million.
The burial arrangements had to be delayed because his body could not be released by the hospital until the family committed to paying the bill.
Kamanu’s father, a farmer and primary school teacher, gave out his land title deed to serve as collateral. The funeral took place on Saturday, January 13th 2018.
The family exhausted all its resources to make sure Willys had the best medical treatment.
The family is planning a fundraiser on February 3rd 2018 at Elite Primary School to raise money to pay off the remaining hospital.
The family is calling upon well-wishers to kindly assist with offsetting the hospital bill.
I am appealing to friends and well wishers to help with any amount they will be touched to give.
