Last week, a top AFC Leopards fan died in an unfortunate manner after she was denied treatment from Mbale Hospital in Vihiga.
Annet Kabareka, 22, who is widely known as Joy Daizy, was involved in a road accident along Lunyelele area in Vihiga County which later claimed her life.
A matatu drove from behind and knocked a bodaboda she had boarded; throwing them into a ditch and leaving her in terrible condition, according to his sister Maureen Muhonja.
She would later be rushed to Mbale hospital where doctors demanded cash money worth Ksh. 5,000 before commencing treatment. Her mother Beatrice Adisa would later arrive with Ksh. 2,000 cash, but the clinicians stayed put and watched her breathing her last breath.
“I can confirm that my sister Joy Daizy has died after being involved in a road accident. I however still believe that she would have not died if the doctors treated her immediately she arrived in the hospital. They refused to administer any form of medication to her because she never had a paltry sh5000 at the moment. It is very sad,” she told a local daily.
Her body was taken to St Monica’s Riat hospital in Kisumu and burial date tentatively set for this Saturday their Jebrock village in Vihiga County.
Joy, the fourth born in a family of seven kids, has been a strong AFC Leopards since 2010. Though all her life has been in Vihiga, she has travelled across the country to support her beloved club.
Efforts by interested parties to get a comment from Mbale hospital were futile as phone calls went unanswered.
