Danny Miles, the ailing Kenyan man who begged Safaricom to educate his daughter because once he passed away has died.
On January 19, 2023, Danny Miles penned a heartbreaking open letter to Safaricom. In the sad letter, Miles acknowledged that he was living his last days due to a cancer illness that had failed treatment.
Here is the prayer Danny Miles prayed to Safaricom:
I am Maurice Ochieng known as Danny Miles. I am from Muhoroni town. In March last year, I was diagnosed with cancer, soft tissue sarcoma.
It’s eating me up for sure. Day by day I am feeling. I had been saving so that I take my small family to a vacation but I have been drained. I cant. I am living with the help of friends. My young Daughter Britney Dova is still young. She has not started shool yet.
I was planning but I am sorry I have failed as a dad. Had my left arm chopped off but still the cancer metastased. I am appealing to you to just help my daughter once I am gone because I can feel it.
My number is 0706345827. My wife’s number is 0757084605 (Florence Odege) or maybe treat us to a once in a lifetime ride I will appreciate so much.”
Miles had been admitted at the hospital on March 11 after his healtg took a turn for the worse.
“Today Earlier was Admitted again at Muhoroni Rachar Nursing Home. Developed serious lung attack and could not breath properly. I am stable now just. Looking for way foward how some procedures can be done i breath well again. Thank you for the Prayers and Financial support,” he had posted online.
News of his death broke on the evening of March 21, 2023, two months after he made the request to Safaricom.
A few days before his death, Miles had hinted that his health had deteriorated and he had little chance of making it.
“It attacked again and I really suffocated. Whatever Happens, I Belong to God,” he had posted two days before his death.
