In 2017, Francis got pneumonia and was treated. After a few days, the doctors realized that he had a swollen pancreas and advised his wife to take him to Kenyatta National hospital.
After several tests, he was diagnosed with the cancer of the blood. His family abandoned him at the hospital and his wife was the only one taking care of him.
This disease have affected his hearing and his speech to. Miraculously, Francis talks so but he doesn’t hear. He communicates with his family through reading their lips as they speak and slowly responds to them.
His lovely wife Alice Njeri Mugweru, confirmed that he was a very hardworking driver who always provided for his family.
She now have to work harder and provide for her family as well as buying medicines for her husband.
“My husband have to take six tables daily, which costs Sh. 2000 each. I have to wash clothes for other families so that I can feed my family and buy my husband’s medicine,” she painfully narrated.
Her husband’s family abandoned them and claimed that Alice have been using witchcraft on her husband. She remained strong and put all her trust in the Lord.
Their daughter Nelly, broke down as she explained the struggles they go through ever since her dad got sick. She have always been sent home by her teacher over school fees arrears. However, she hopes to achieve her goals and help her mum in educating her younger sister. Nelly pleaded with the well wishers to help her pay her school fees.
When little Avril was given the microphone, she didn’t manage to speak. The only thing she said was that tears are flowing from her eyes and handed over the microphone to her mother.
During the interview, the whole family pleaded with the members of public to help them in any way.
The host Barothi, also broke down and asked his viewers to support the little family spiritually and financially.
At the end of the interview, Madam Alice prayed and blessed the well wishers who came out in large numbers as their story was been aired.
We wish Mr. francis a quick recovery. May the good Lord give peace and comfort to this young family.
