Before her demise, Achieng Abura had indicated on her Facebook page on October 7th that doctors had advised her to gain weight. This was after she lost 30kgs.

"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," Achieng’s post read.

The legendary singer was admitted at KNH’s private wing on October 13. What she was suffering from was not immediately communicated to the public.

But sources close to the singer have intimidated that she was suffering from chronic illness; three diseases have been named so far.

Media reports say that Abura was being treated for depression and gastritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach) at KHN private wing. Another source was  quoted by the Star as saying that the singer was suffering from kidney problems.

The family is yet to reveal detailed information of what caused the death of the Afro-jazz queen. We will be communicating more information once we get the scoop.
