Former Miss Nyamira Mercy Mokeira’s is finally laid to rest.
This is happening at her home, her parents’ home in Ekerenyo Sub-County in Nyamira County after the body left Umash Funeral Home in Nakuru County yesterday.
The 23-year-old vibrant model died at North Kinangop Hospital where she was undergoing treatment for an undisclosed disease. The young model was admitted to hospital after she complained of muscle pains.
“She complained of muscle pains but preliminary results failed to show the disease she was suffering from. We then sent for more tests but she died before we got the results back,” Josphat Momanyi, her father, said.
The news saddened the county’s leadership, which considered her an important figure in the community.
“This is a great loss to our county. We are saddened beyond words,” Jones Omwenga, a member of the County Executive in Nyamira, eulogized her.
Ms Mercy Mokeira was to graduate from Kenyatta University in June this year with a Bachelor Degree in Law.
Kenyans have rushed to social media to pay their last respects to the fallen model and the #farewellmissnyamira is currently trending on twitter.
This is what Kenyans had to say:
Local residents in Mokeira’s home village today gathered at Ekerenyo Stadium for the funeral service of Miss World Nyamira.
