According to Muthoni’s sister, the deceased had health complications since last year and after recieving the results she fell into depression.
“It seems like she was planning her death. A week ago she told us to take care of the children since it was only God who knew the kind of pain she was undergoing,” said the emotional sister.
The former area Mp has attributed the increase in cases of cancer due to bad lifestyle choices such as consuming dairy products with high chemical residue.
