The late Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso died Monday 29th July.
Laboso succumbed to cancer at the Nairobi Hospital.
She had been admitted at the facility’s ICU last week after her arrival from India where she was receiving treatment.
Laboso had left the country on May 29 for the United Kingdom (Royal Madden NHS hospital) where she stayed before being transferred for further treatment in India.
Classic 105’s Maina Kageni paid tribute to her, and asked that Kenyans speak out about how Cancer is ravaging people.
She was the nicest person ever. She had such a clean heart, if you came across her and you had a god demeanor, she had all the time for you.
I saw her husband on Tv and I thought oh my gosh, he is so strong.
Over the ages, human kind has gone through plaques, this is the plaque of our time. We lose 80 Kenyans a day to cancer and that’s the craziest thing about it, and it’s not just her, it’s all over the world
Cancer is the biggest killer.
Maina also sought to start debate around the disease and asked listeners some challenging questions:
It’s the most painful thing ever. You hear 50 per cent of bed occupancy in India are Kenyans, and this morning I want us to have our early morning chat.
Does it worry you? Have you gone for screening, everyone has cancer cells, what are you feeding yours?
Have you been screening and does the statistics worry you? If not are there any fears you’ve got? If we don’t talk about it, information will never pass on.
