Nlikua naona anapelekwa hospitali anadungwa sindano anaaambiwa akule matunda zingine. So mi sikua nashikanisha rada ni gani, mi nikampelekea chocolate and that’s the day she died. And from that day everything changed. Buda akanichukia na mi sikujua nimefanya nini. Ju mi sikua najua nlipelekea Gracey chocolate nikamwambia Happy Birthday. Chenye iliniudhi ni ilikua birthday yake. Dad akaniblame mpaka ikacrash familia" revealed Rayge.
