It was a very trying time and talking about it sometimes makes me very emotional so I try not to, but you are advised to. All I can say is that so many people came out and lashed at us saying very many bad things. But for me, that’s when you get to know your friends. That happened to us. It’s something I think about every day,” said Willis Raburu.

He added that most people don’t understand the kind of challenges one goes through after experience such a loss.

It is very difficult. I don’t think people understand what that kind of loss does to you because I don’t think there’s any day yenye inapita that I don’t get affected,” he said.

There’s a day when we had the covid we went to Nairobi hospital where it happened.
