Interpretation Of: Long Illness & Short Illness

This is the language used in Kenya to describe diseases and minimize stigma.

… Died after a long illness = HIV/AIDS

… Died after a Short Illness = COVID19

Kwani its mandatory to state the duration of illness ?

Guys just love the juicy details of a person, even in death guys want to know the “juicy” details of the deceased .

Died suddenly…
Was found with “mke wa mtu” and team builded…

That’s what I always ask mySelofu.
Na Hata ikikosa kuandikwa, watu kwa mazishi watanong’onezana tu.Sijui shida ya wanadamu ni gani.
If it’s stated as an illness, they’ll still wanna know which one, was he/she admitted, how long, bla bla chieth.



One who is easily led; a meek or timid person; thought and action which is controlled by the opinions and expectations of others.
