Activist Okiya Omtatah’s daughter died on Friday after suffering from acute malaria.

21-year-old Maryann Marisyanna Annuarite died on Thursday night after spending a week in coma at a Nairobi hospital.

The deceased was a third year student studying diplomacy and international relations at the Riara University. She was Omtatah’s third born out of four children.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has since sent his message of condolences to the activist, further urging him to channel the pain into pushing for policies to improve the lives of fellow Kenyan citizens.
