SAD: Kenyan woman Joy Aoko dies after brutal attack, rape in Albania



Joy Achieng Aoko, a Kenyan woman who was battling for her life in Albania after being attacked and raped, has passed away.

Ms. Aoko’s mother, Ms. Ruth Abong’o, told Nation that her daughter passed away on Monday, February 13, 2023, while receiving care at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital (KUTRH).

“We have lost my daughter. I only hope that as a family, we shall get justice,” Ms Abong’o said.

After governmental intervention, Ms. Aoko, who had been violently attacked while working in Albania, was medically evacuated to Kenya on January 25 due to her critical condition.

Diaspora Principal Secretary Rose Njogu and acting health director-general Dr. Patrick Amoth met her at the Wilson Airport in an air ambulance.

In an effort to ameliorate her family’s situation, Ms. Aoko left for Albania on February 14, 2022, and started working as a croupier in a casino

On August 13, 2022, she was discovered unconscious under the Tirana building where she resided.

Ms. Aoko was in a coma and in poor physical condition when her mother visited her in Albania on September 12. Her mother hardly recognized her.

“I found my daughter in the ICU. She was on the ventilator … she was covered in a lot of machines. I did not recognise her. She had contractions; she was all bandaged up,” the distraught mother explains.

“Doctors had given up hope because they had already given her medication and it had been six weeks. The doctors were wondering why she was not waking up.”
