Former Kwale Woman Rep. Zainab Chidzuga is dead

Zainab Chidzuga, a former Kwale Woman Representative, died in a Nairobi hospital from COVID-19 complications.

Chidzuga was reportedly admitted to the hospital for two weeks due to heart complications caused by the coronavirus.

A source who spoke to When media on condition of anonymity said the family is seeking to raise a Ksh.2 million hospital bill accrued when Chidzuga was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Chidzuga was the Chairperson of Maendeleo ya Wanawake in the 1990s before being elected as the first Kwale Woman Representative in 2013 on an ODM ticket.

She joined the Jubilee Party in 2017 and lost her seat to current Kwale Woman Representative Zuleikha Hassan, who was running under the ODM banner.

President Uhuru Kenyatta then appointed her to various State boards, and she received a Head of State Commendation at last year’s Mashujaa Day Celebrations.
