A young soul, a genius taken too soon.
We loved to be with you and we know you were happy too, however, we believe that you are more happier where you are now. We will always miss you Esther.


Kamuzu is mostly single rooms


she wasn’t discriminated she was in a single room for cleanliness reasons…so she can use the toilet alone …unfortunately thatvroom could just accommodate one bed …she was an independent person well trained by parents ..she had a disability but was not disabled because she could do a lot bybherself..a beautiful soul she was .in and well Esther…

Rip Esther!!!! we’ll miss you


Physically challenged with a twin sister and staying alone in a room? How? Rooms are very expensive, no way she could be staying alone. She has died from serious and discriminated loneliness.If she was physically challenged, I mean disabled, why her sister was not looking after her.Discrimination in purest form indeed. All the same, Esther rest in peace


Her twin is also in same condition as she was…She too uses wheelchair

wobeba wanga

was she staying alone in her room? wasn’t she discriminated?

Physically challenged is not a good way of describing people. Next time use something like Disabled.

“Physically challenged” is better, more neutral, and more diplomatic than “disabled”; so it is said in our modern-day interaction.
