Members of the  Kenyan community in Atlanta are in utter shock after one of their own, Margaret Nganga, was found dead in her car a day after she left home for work. Ms Nganga’s body was discovered on Tuesday in the parking garage of Northside Hospital where she worked.

Police are investigating the circumstances that led to her death. According to her family,  she was in good health (as far as they could tell) and in high spirits on the day she passed away.

On Tuesday night, her husband, Daniel Kimani, wrote the following on his social media platforms: “Its with deep sorrow that I inform you of the regrettable passing on of my dear wife Margaret. I seek for your Prayers of provision and Comfort.”

He later confirmed to KSN that indeed Margaret’s body was found in her car a day after she left her home.

“She left for a meeting in the work place yesterday (Monday) morning but she didn’t even attend the meeting as she was found dead today (Tuesday) in the same spot where she had parked her car,” said Mr Kimani.

Many who knew her took to social media to express shock and disbelief.

Snn Ngash wrote: “With the death of your loving wife the days ahead may seem bleak and dark and my prayer is that God will shine His light and guide you through each and every one of them. Please accept my sincere condolences.”

James Kanya wrote: “My heart goes out to you and your dear family. May God give us comfort and Peace as we deal with this. Pole sana.”

Paul Mucheru Mugi wondered: “What could have happened? Soo sad to hear that. May The God of all comforts, comfort your entire family as you go through these hard times. My sincere condolences.”

Many of her friends told of how they spent the day together at the Kenyan American Community Church on Sunday where she was well and in “very high spirits.”

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Kenyan- American actress Lupita Nyongo and her co-star Winston Duke bought five pairs of sneakers worth over $ 3,000 (Ksh 300,000).

The two actors shared with Jo-La Puma, the owner of Stadium Goods, a sneaker shop based in New York City, how their sense of style is shaped by their Kenyan and Caribbean heritage.

 

 

 

The Kenyan actor says;

“I have a very stylish mother. Growing up, I was always so impressed by how she always put herself together.”

She further adds; 

“One of my aunts was a cloth designer, so I would draw up the same way. I remember designing my own prom dress. It’s the African influence because we love, love color that’s why my clothes were always out there.”

 

 

 32-year-old Winston Duke says;

“For me, fashion is very expressive because in the Caribbean color is in our blood. Growing up, expensive shoes and fashion was kinda out of reach, I would draw sneakers and dream that I would touch it someday.”

The star actors have worked together in the new psychological horror “Us” and 2018 Marvel movie “Black Panther”.
