Gone too soon
Akothee’s younger sister Elseba Awuor Kokeyo, popularly known as Cebbie koks Nyasego also mourned her sister-in-law saying “
“Death sounds so abstract not until it knocks their. It doesn't give a warning
It doesn't tell when it comes. When we are taken Ill, we all hope to heal and praise his name as we rejoice in happiness. The opposite is welcome with sheer sorrows. Sheer fear and agony. Ultimate fear of humans of all kind. But God doesn't want us to live in fear nor defeat. He wants us to live and die in confidence that comes from knowing we belong to the victorious . It's a road we are all made for. Gone too soon. May your soul Rest In Peace jaber Min Maraga..”
In August last year, Akothee and her family lost yet another sister-in-law whom they identified Mama Brian.
