Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale’s first wife Adelaide is dead.
She succumbed to cancer on Saturday morning at their Malinya home in Ikolomani sub-county.
Speaking at Mukumu Mission Hospital mortuary where the body was moved, Khalwale said his wife collapsed on her way to the bathroom.
“My wife was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix in 2003. This year, she contracted cancer of the blood. She had successfully undergone her sixth chemotherapy at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital where it was cleared. On Friday, she developed pulmonary hypertension,” said Mr Khalwale.
Before her demise, Adelaide worked at Masinde Muliro University as a secretary.
