According to initial reports, the late Tecra Muigai had a swelling in the brain after tumbling down a staircase at a house in Lamu.
The condition, which doctors describe as cerebral-edema, means there is a buildup of fluid around the brain, which can lead to brain damage.
Tecra, reports indicate, is a frequent visitor to Lamu. She arrived early April to visit boyfriend Omar Lali of Shella town, Lamu Island. The two met mid last year and a relationship blossomed. Here are his photos.
