Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, on Saturday, October 12, got emotional while speaking about her mother’s ill health.
Speaking during a phone interview with kenyagist.com, the outspoken legislator revealed that her mother has been undergoing treatment in India after being diagnosed with cancer.
“My mother has been away for three months. She was diagnosed with cancer and we had to fly her to India. Of course, we’ve been missing her but she is coming back soon.
Given my mother’s diabetic state, I don’t think she could have been treated very well in Kenya. We don’t have the scans that can show where cancer in one’s body” Passaris narrated.
She went on to explain that that her family was lucky since one of her siblings resides in India.
“I have a sister who lives in India. Otherwise, if she didn’t live there, I would have been lost. She was able to access the best medical care. She has been there for three months,” she added.
The woman representative further stated that she flew to Mombasa to surprise her father, Eleftherious Passaris, whose birthday was on Tuesday, October 8.
“I came down with a cake from Nairobi because he likes chocolate cake. It was not very easy to carry a 2kg cake on my hands because of my back problem,” Passaris narrated.
