The nation is in mourning today evening.

Musician Achieng Abura has died at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH)

The popular songstress, composer and pianist was hospitalised at KNH’s private wing.

The cause of death has not been established however, she indicated earlier through a Facebook post that she was ill.

On October 7 she wrote

I have lost over 50 kgs in the last three Years. Everything is hanging and weak. Walking is a problem with pains all over. Doctor says I must add 30 kgs then lose it as I exercise and firm up. The irony of life.”

The last part of her Facebook status seemed to offer her fans some advice about living a healthy life.

I was not even losing weight intentionally! I allowed life to get the better of me. Learn from my mistakes.”
