The nation is still struggling to come to terms with the sudden passing of Miss World Kenya Nyamira County Mercy Mokeria who gave up the ghost on Saturday, January 28.
The 23-year-old passed on at North Kinangop Hospital where she had been admitted since mid January 2017.
Her father, Josephat Momanyi, told journalists that Mokeria had complained of muscle pains but preliminary results failed to show the disease she was suffering from.
The beauty queen was then taken for more tests but she passed away before her family got the results back.
Mokeira was set to graduate from Kenyatta University (KU) in June this year with a Bachelor Degree in Law.
She became immensely popular after she and Miss Kenya Siaya County Sharon Halima took photos with inmates whom netizens considered “more attractive” than them.
Here are her photos:
Here’s an interview she did with KTN’s Betty Kyallo.
