On December 6, 2020, Monix took to her Facebook page to inform Kenyans that she had been admitted to hospital.
“Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will still sing of Your praises my God. And when I feel like losing faith and roll in a ball of despair crying, I will choose to be still and know that You still are GOD!
“Donâ€™t call me peeps, my tear glands are like masinga dam waiting to erupt. Send me love and wellness and healing,” she posted then, along with photos of her on oxygen support.

“Be grateful for your lungs. Those two little ninjas that you have never seen keep you animated and alive. Be extremely grateful for every breath you can take without external help. My two little ninjas arenâ€™t up to the task so am on oxygen support. Meanwhile, I will have a meeting with my two ninja lungs and we shall have an agreement that they shall style up. Dry bones shall live again! Amen!” Monix updated on December 7, 2020.
