It has been a long couple of weeks for the family of the late Ramadhan Kajembe, ex Changamwe MP.
Kajembe passed on two weeks ago after falling victim to the invisible enemy, COVID-19.
On Wednesday night, his daughter, Aisha Langoni is said to have succumbed to the virus after being on oxygen support for days.
Reports indicate that Ms Langoni was receiving treatment at Pandya Hospital and had been admitted at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
It is said that she died at around 10 pm.
Last month, the family lost one of Kajembe’s wives who is also said to have lost the battle to Coronavirus.
Weeks ago, the family sought to take legal action against Health CS Mutahi Kagwe for what they termed as stigmatisation.
Then, CS Kagwe accused one of the children of failing to observe Covid-19 containment measures leading to the death of their parents.
The CS said: “He (the son) refused to self isolate which led to the infection of his sister and parents. Unlike him, they are elderly and as usual with underlying conditions so they were impacted more. As we speak, this family has lost the one elderly family member, the head of the household just two weeks after burying his mother.”
The family did however acknowledge that their parents had succumbed to the novel COVID-19 but asked that they are given time to mourn the dead.
“It is unfortunate that a whole cabinet secretary can come out and issue a mere statement that a young man who brought coronavirus to his parents. We are urging the CS to withdraw the sentiments against my family,” a family member said.
It is reported that out of Kajembe’s 16 children, at least four had contracted the killer disease.
