The last text messages from Dr. Doreen Lugaliki sent to a pal have emerged.
Dr Lugaliki succumbed to COVID-19 on Thursday, July 9, at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi after being admitted on Monday (July 6).
“She contracted the virus while saving others who had caught the disease,” Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said during his daily briefing to the media.
“On behalf of the Government, I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to her family. I say pole pole sana. I have spoken to her father and two sisters. I want to say it is a sad day for our healthcare workers.”
CS Kagwe honoured Dr Lugaliki by observing a one-minute silence.
A tweep, @ManuuNgesh, who chatted with Dr Lugaliki shared their last WhatsApp conversation.
“My heart is heavy! I don’t know what to say. Good Lord! F&ck Covid.
Doreen You kept asking me to take all the precautions every other day. What’s gonna happen to the Babies.
God , give us the strength! More so to the family! RIP Dr Lugaliki.”
