Sierra Leonean Dies in Egypt
Mrs. Gloria Coker, a Sierra Leonean citizen has died in Cairo, Egypt as reportedly suffering from brain injury which hospital sources have qualified as brain cancer.
Mrs. Coker who will be buried today in Cairo died over the weekend after doctors battled in vain to save her life.
Members of the Sierra Leonean community in Egypt speculate that Mrs. Gloria Coker must have been a victim of torture by her Egyptian employers.
The Sierra Leone community says it has no money to repatriate the body to Sierra Leone. Even funeral expenses for burial could not be undertaken by the Sierra Leone community due to lack of money.
Hence, relatives at home and abroad were contacted to make contributions for burial in Egypt.
According to competent family sources, Mrs. Gloria Coker was legally married in Sierra Leone with kids but left her husband in 2016 on the pretext of going to Guinea for business transactions.
Several days later, she resurfaced in Cairo for a programme to travel to Australia.
During the Sierra Leonean citizen’s last moments in Cairo. she barely had just the barest minimum: an ordinary foam on the floor.
The deplorable economic conditions back home actually burn like hellfire which continues to force thousands of Sierra Leoneans to flee to the diaspora in search of greener pastures.
A number of Sierra Leoneans are perishing in Egypt, Libya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States where they are treated like semi humans.
Rest in peace Gloria Coker. May Allah forgive you for your mistakes and admit you in His kingdom.
