“I need to come to Sweden to attend my lover’s funeral, time is running out and I need to get a visa before they take the ashes away”, said the woman.

The Swedish man took a flight to Mombasa and on arrival at the Mombasa airport, he passed away while filling the visa card. It was the flight attendants who found him dead. The Kenya woman got the sad information through the Swedish man’s son who e-mailed her on the 17th may telling her that his dad was dead. “I was to meet him at the Hotel on the 16th but when I got there, the receptionist told me that he had not checked in. On the 17th I ranged him on his mobile and his home number but there was no answer”, said the Kenyan woman.

“Iam totally confused and to be honest, I don’t know what to do. Please help me in anyway you can and I will be grateful for your kindness”, she said. Plans are underway to see how the woman can be helped. Jamii will post more details on how you can help the woman.
