Three months after the untimely death of Keroche heiress Tecra Muigai her mother Tabitha Karanja has penned an emotional tribute.
Tecra, the last born daughter to the Keroche boss passed away after she succumbed to injuries she sustained after an accident in Lamu.
Reports indicate that she was found bleeding and unconscious in the house before she was rushed to a nearby clinic and later airlifted to Nairobi where she succumbed to her injuries.
She was at the time with her boyfriend Omar Lali.
Taking to her Twitter account, Tabitha Karanja confessed that Tecra’s death left her unable to move forward.
“This week marks 100 days since we laid to rest my last born daughter Tecra. Her death left me brokenhearted without an idea of how to move forward. People say to give it time. But truth is that time changes nothing. What has changed is my eyes have been opened to more truths,” she captioned an old photo of herself and a young Tecra.
Tabitha added that Tecra was not only a daughter but also a friend, workmate and close confidant.
“29 years ago when Tecra was gifted to me, I was drawn to her insatiable curiosity. Through the years I benefited from her outlook of the world. She became my sounding board in my very private life and my public life as an entrepreneur. I dearly miss her counsel and company,” she wrote.
Tabitha further stated that she was glad of the impact Tecra had on people’s lives adding that ever since her sad demise, she has been receiving calls from different people across the world whose lives Tecra impacted.
“I’ve heard from friends in 20 countries whose lives Tecra touched & inspired. Her life proves what differentiates people is – opportunity. Thank you all for prayers that helped ease our pain. For those in a similar place, I pray for the grace to live & grieve at the same time,” she finished off.
Upon Tecra’s death, her boyfriend Omar, a stocky and bushy man in his 50’s, was arrested and arraigned at the Lamu Law Courts, where Principal Magistrate Allan Temba allowed DCI detectives to continue detaining him.
