Speaking to Nation, Patricia’s younger sister Anita Miswa, said she spoke to her sister during new year’s eve and did not notice any medical change in their conversation.

Last week, her family in Kenya sent out a passionate appeal to well-wisher to help them with her burial arrangements that will happen in Kiti, Nakuru county.

Kenyans abroad answered the call to help by turning up at the Church of the Nazarene in North Brooklyne centre in Minnesota where they raised enough cash to ferry her body back home.
