Bonny Khalwale has lost his first wife.
Mrs Adelaide Shikanga has been battling cancer since 2003. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2003 and later on this year she was diagnosed with blood cancer.
At the time of her death she had undergone a successful chemotherapy where the cancer was cleared. She then developed pulmonary hypertension.
As she was going to the bathroom, she collapsed, Dr. Bonny Khalwale tried to resuscitate her but unfortunately she didn’t make it.
“Immediately she collapsed, she called our house help who went and found her unconscious. I attempted to resuscitate my wife who gasped her last breath in my hands,” said Mr Khalwale.
Dr. Khalwale and Adelaide have been together for 39 years. He attributed his success to Adelaide.
He said they have built their wealth, family and education together. They had two sons and a daughter.
The body of the deceased was taken to Mukumu Mission Hospital mortuary.
May God comfort the family and friends of Adelaide.
