Cancer warrior Emmanuel Otieno, better known as Jadudi,  succumbed to the disease on Monday night.

The 26 year old who was an alumni of the University of Nairobi died at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kisumu.

Jadudi’s struggle with brain cancer started in 2012 and after three surgeries, he sought help from the Africa Cancer Foundation. He got more assistance from Kenyans after Jackson Biko, a Business Daily writer shared his story which saw the public raise Sh6.4 million surpassing the initial target of Sh1 million.

“We regret to inform you that Jadudi, a.k.a. Emmanuel Otieno, succumbed to brain cancer at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu on the night of March 4, 2019,” a statement from Africa Cancer Foundation said.
