  • Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja, on March 9, 2021, testified at the Milimani law courts on the death of her daughter Tecra Muigai's - and looked to have shed a significant amount of weight.

    A number of Kenyans took notice - and went on an overdrive - with many associating the weight loss to the loss of her daughter Tecra, who died under mysterious circumstances in Lamu, in May 2020.

    There were instant speculation that mourning the death of her child must have had a significant impact on her - like it would to any mother.

    However, Karanja's daughter, Anerlisa Muigai, has dismissed the rumours, stating that the family had embarked on a weight loss journey.

    “Leave my mother alone! Her weight loss is fine and it’s something we decided as a family that we all wanted to shed off excess weight. #HealthyLiving,” she wrote on her Instagram.

    In addition, Anerlisa shared before and after photos of herself and her brother, which all showed their weight transformation in recent years.

    Anerlisa, who has been sharing her weight loss journey, has been at the forefront in championing for healthy living.

    The family has been undergoing tough times after the death of Tecra.

    On Tuesday, Tabitha told the court that she noted suspicious money transfers from Tecra’s account to her boyfriend Omar Lali.

    She tabled the financial statements, claiming that Tecra could have been coerced by Lali to transact the amount in question.

    “Ksh 150,000 on August 9 and August 20, Ksh 100,000 on August 28, October 18, and November 1, and Ksh 200,000 on November 13,” Tabitha told the court, explaining that all the dates were in 2019.

    She told the court that the total amount was more than Ksh 1 million within 5 months.
