Recently, Koikai sent out the following message:

 

This corridor has been my walk way for a few weeks. Right after my surgery, my cardiothoracic surgeon walks

in and says there’s more water in the lungs. Fair enough. That meant another mini-surgery. I aced it. I went through it and came out with more tubes right under my breast going through to my ribs connected to the two boxes you see on the walker.

The box on the side was connected to my stomach. All draining water and blood. I also had a catheter in. Then a week later, doc said they found water in another part of my rib cage. So they gave me options. Either we insert the tube through your armpit or through your back or through your breast. I couldn’t bear a tube in my back since i lie on my back. I opted to have the tube through my right breast. I aced it. It started draining.

I just want to encourage little girls in high school, young adult women, career women who’ve had to endure this pain, miss school and always shamed. I’m here for you. I will be there for you as long as God gives me life. They will hear our pain. They will know that Endo is real and we need a cure.


All the tubes were removed. I’m recovering well just dealing with the motions of healing.
We have a fundraiser and thanksgiving event on the 5th of May at Believers Celebration Centre in Marietta, Atlanta. I will be there to share my story.

US warns Kenyans over fake marriages, says they won’t be allowed to fly out

Published

on

The US embassy in Nairobi on Monday issued a warning to Kenyans getting duped into fake marriages to acquire a visa.

Through their official social media pages, the embassy advised caution in the event somebody offers to get you a green card using dubious means.

“Has anyone ever told you they can get a green card for you? Don’t believe them! They are lying and just trying to steal your money. Don’t believe them when they say you can have a fake marriage and still get your green card.

“If you apply with a fake marriage, you will get caught and you will not get your green card. You will become permanently ineligible to ever go to the United States, and you will never be able to get a U.S. visa or a green card,” the embassy warned.

Kenyans were further urged to apply for a visa or the green card lottery by themselves.

The statement conveyed: “You don’t need to use a fixer to apply for the diversity visa or green card lottery. You can do it yourself and pay the required fee.”

The embassy stated that one should only apply through the Embassy’s official website.

“If you know about anyone promising they can get a green card for you if you enter into a fake marriage, go to the police and report them. You should also report them to the U.S. Embassy,” the statement concluded.

Earlier last week, US Ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec announced that the United States government was gearing up to fight fake news in Kenya adding that it had eroded confidence in Kenya’s real news media.

Speaking during an interview, Godec stated: “Fake news is being weaponized. It’s undermining democracy in Kenya.”

He further remarked: “We’re not asking them to believe any particular thing. We’re just urging people not to take everything they see on their phone via WhatsApp as the truth because it may not be.”
