She faced her first challenge on February 9 when she was turned away at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on grounds that she could not travel to Canada through Europe. She was not given a reason why she could not go to Canada through Europe.

When she finally arrived in Canada, she went to her friend’s house where she spent the night. The following day, her friend took her to the assylum shelter,  left her there hoping that she would settle in seamlessly. Unfortunatley, she was requested to stay outside the shelter alongside two others to allow the shelter managers to create room at the shelter which is typically full most of the time. She stayed outside for many hours before she was asked to proceed to the reception. She died few days later on February 18 after requesting for asylum.

A mother of four, Delphina had faced struggles before traveling to Canada and she looked forward to a better life in North American but her life took an unexpected turn after arriving in the destination where she considered safe and promising.

Born in Kenya, Delphina possessed a vibrant spirit and an unwavering determination to create a better life for herself and her children. She wanted a brighter future abroad, however, the dreams that propelled her to new horizons soon turned into a harrowing nightmare when she died after waiting in the cold outside a shelter home for many hours.

  1. It hurts when we all know the potential wealth in our continent Africa as we see thousands of Africans like Delphina Wambui Ngigi and many others who die in the seas trying to seek better lives in less naturally disadvantaged nations in terms of natural wealth. Until when will Africans enjoy their naturally wealthy continent?
