This comes 2 weeks after two senior government officials based at the Kenyan Embassy in Italy were dispatched by the Cabinet Secretary of Foreign Affairs Hon. Alfred Mutua to investigate Joy Abongo’s attack incident following pleas and calls from Kenyans living in Diaspora.

Joy was attacked by unknown assailants in August 2022 while she was in her house in Albania. According to her mother, they were on a phone call with joy when her phone just went off abruptly.

Kenyan Diaspora assisted by friends and well-wishers in Kenya and abroad has managed to raise almost Kshs. 6 million through Gofund me and Mpesa for her treatment and rehabilitation expenses.

Joy Abongo has spent several months in an Albanian Hospital and the doctors said that they can’t do much and needed to be transferred to a more specialized facility that was not available in Albania.

Joy’s mom Ruth Abongo, requested assistance from friends and well-wishers to locate Rehabilitation services in any European specialty hospitals where Joy was to be attended by Neuro-Brain Specialist but their quotes were so expensive and so she decided to seek assistance from the Kenyan Government who offered to fly her to Kenya where they promised to get her rehabilitation services locally which could be cheaper.

Joy had already begun to get physiotherapy services privately on top of what the Albania Hospital could offer but was paid out of pocket.

The Kenyan Ministry of foreign affairs offered to hire a chartered plane fitted with medical equipment to airlift Joy Abongo to Kenya and is almost landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport any time today.

Kenyans living in Diaspora have continued to call for a speedy investigation and apprehend the culprits who attacked Joy Abongo and want them to be jailed. The local media in Tirana, Albania has also pressured the police to act and arrest the perpetrators.

When police and the media visited her apartment room it was in a mess, the food she was eating that evening was strewn all over the floor and some was found on her bed.

There are allegations that she might have been raped but the police are yet to finalize their investigation and come up with a more conclusive report on what exactly happened.
