The message sent to Waudo read in part,
“Hi, hope this finds you well. I want to thank you for the support you have offered me. Meanwhile, sijapona and I will be going back to Kenyatta Hospital for a 2nd MRI.”
The first MRI scan indicated he has an abnormal infection in the brain. Waudo said,
“The medics told us they could not confirm if it’s a tumour or not.”
His message goes on:
“As at now the growth imenishika, ulimi umefura hata. I am not able to either eat or talk. I am pleading with you for any assistance to enable me get treatment. Thanks and God bless.”
