Singer Nyashinski's wife Zia Bett has announced the passing of her sister Janet Bett. 

Taking to social media, Zia in her insta stories uploaded Janet's short videos dancing and wrote:

"Dance with the angels. I was so blessed to have you."

This comes a few weeks after the two appealed to well-wishers to assist them to raise ksh10 million meant to cater for Janet's medical bills.

In the appeal, the family had disclosed that Janet Bett Karoney was suffering from a rare blood disorder known as Severe Aplastic Anaemia.

She was diagnosed with the condition on August 10, 2021, and since then she was going for blood transfusion after every 10 days.

Severe Aplastic Anaemia is a rare condition caused by the bone marrow stopping to produce enough blood.

The best treatment for such a condition is undergoing a bone marrow transplant which she was scheduled to undergo in India.

“Unfortunately, this cannot be done in Kenya as there is no hospital that provides the service and we have to ensure that she leaves the country to seek medical attention. We are appealing for funds as her family and friends to help get the treatment she urgently needs,” he said.

He also said that the family was ready to receive any amount from well-wishers as he said that they were aware that the current economic state was wanting due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
