Rodger Abidha, Wangeci’s classmate for the past six years, described her as a hardworking student and a doctor to be. His message read;
She was such a hard worker, a good student and an amazing doctor to be. She stayed late taking care of patients, diligently followed up on them, stop spreading malicious rumours about her. She was not a ‘slay-queen’ she was a doctor to be. Put some RESPECT to her name.
