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.”

Margaret’s death comes at a time when the bodies of three other Kenyans (2 women and one man) lie at West Cobb Funeral home in Marietta, GA., after they passed away in a span of the last few weeks. Timothy Majanja, a homeless Kenyan who died at Grady Memorial Hospital, will be buried in Kakamega on Saturday. His body arrives in Nairobi on Thursday.

“The community is really hurting right now,” said Jack Musau, a resident of Marietta, Georgia.

Margaret lived in Acworth, Georgia and leaves behind four children.

VIDEO: Joy as 84 year-old Kenyan man who has lived in US for 60 yrs returns home to a rousing welcome [PHOTOS]

Published

BY CHRISTINE MUCHENE

A journey that started in March last year is now complete. Mr. James Mugweru has finally arrived in his motherland, Kenya, after 6 dacades in the United States.

It was pomp and colour as family and friends  gathered in Nakuru to welcome him with a very warm and rousing reception.
Mugweru, 84, came to the US through the famous educational air lift organized by the late Tom Mboya in 1959.He had only returned to Kenya twice in those 60 years he has been in the US.

Around March last year, I was approached by a young man in Kenya to help trace his grandfather whom they had never seen but would hear from stories that he lived in America.

It however did not take me long to fish him out of where he was, thanks to internet.

He was living in a facility for Senior Citizens in Union city, Georgia.

I thereafter introduced him to my Church family – Kenyan American Community Church (KACC) – and they contributed money for his ticket to Kenya.

Mugweru left the country on February 19th.

I would like to thank all those who have walked this one year journey with him providing the much needed stuff and above all, loving him as Christ would do.

He has always been intrigued by the concern some of you have shown.

Mr. Mugweru has 2 living siblings aged 100 and 80 who were eager and looking forward to reuniting with their lost brother.
Finally thank you Atlanta Kenyan community for believing in my Judgment towards serving God’s people. Without all of you, I would not be of help to the community. God bless.

We do hope that he will come back to visit as you all know that after having lost reality with a country he left long time ago, it can be rough especially in old age and the most needed health care can be out of reach due to lack of money.

This man has been away for too long and those back home could be having high expectation of him and if the same is not there, the happiness may just be temporary leading to abandonment.

He left Kenya undeveloped and the whole country will appear strange not to mention the culture shock.

We, all the same, hope that God will guide him.  To the great people who have given him great love, God bless all.

Chances are he will come back as he cannot fit in Kenya after even loosing his mother tongue and cannot fluently speak Kiswahili which is also forgotten.

It is not easy for James as this is simply a very sad case and maybe a lesson for many, to be prepared and able to face the uncertain, unknown future.

VIDEO: Kenyan woman deported from the US after 21 Years now living in squalor in Nairobi

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

A Kenyan woman who moved to the US in 1986 and was deported 21 years later is now leading a miserable life in Nairobi.

Joy Mukwanjero who was born in Meru – but for the most part brought up in Nairobi- says she had nothing to show for her long stay in “the land of plenty” as she had fallen into wrong company before the immigration officials came calling.

In an interview with Tuko News, Joy, who went to some of the best schools in Kenya, tells of how – upon arrival in the US – she got married to a man who introduced her to “partying.”

“I took a job in the hospitality industry and also enrolled for a political science course at the University of San Fransisco but dropped out midway to focus on my job.”

She says it was after moving in with her husband that she became an alcoholic.

“We soon separated and I moved to a different city in California,” she says.

She was later arrested by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers over lack of proper documents.

Joy was detained for some time and was later deported.

With nothing to show for her stay and while still battling addiction, she began looking for a job in the hospitality industry but with no success.

She later checked herself  into a rehabilitation center.

A pale shadow of her former self, a jovial looking Joy still hopes that her dreams will one day come true.
