Nairobi Woman rep Esther Passaris has spoken candidly about her health status before ringing in the New Year.
The mother of two revealed that she flew to India during the festive season for surgery.
The 55-year-old politician said of the shock ordeal: ‘I thank God for the Gift of Life, my family for their unconditional love and everyone who whispered a word of prayer as I went in..’
She has posted a video of herself being attended to by a doctor in hospital, along with a hopeful message. A photo also shows her on a hospital bed with a respirator mask on her face (below)
Passaris is seen in the video undergoing a post surgery consultation with a surgeon while walking around.
Audio from the video includes the doctor telling her, ‘You are doing 100 per cent better and you look more relaxed now.’
Passaris has not spoken on the record about the condition before, and there has been no further comment about it, only about confronting ups and downs.
2019 was not short of ups and downs; from job losses to loved ones transitioning, many amongst us are currently unwell or struggling to make ends meet, but all in all, we give thanks for the blessing of a new year and for the promises it holds
