Since the death of Nollywood Actor Muna Obiekwe, majority of people have criticized the family for not making available his medical report to the world.
This has sparked arguments in the general public who are calling on the family members to publicly make known his sickness, but a member of his family have finally come out to clear the air.
Miss Chinwe Obiekwe , sister of the late movie star in an interview with Inside Nollywood disclosed that, “he was sick from last year October. It wasn't a normal kidney failure. It was high BP that prompted his kidney failure. It did not give us time to do the transplant because it was his two kidneys that failed”.
"Anybody can have high BP because of stress. It doesn't mean family problem should prompt high BP, it comes with stress. He was taking his medicine but because he was always on set, in different locations, he didn't have much time to drink his medicine properly” she stated.
When asked why his brother did not disclose his sickness to his colleagues for help, she said, “Muna is from a home. He's a private person. That he didn't bring out what was wrong with him to the Internet is because he's a man and my family was ready to operate on him. You don't have to come to Internet and start telling people 'my kidney failed. I need money to help myself. No. At times some problems come to you and you know this is a problem that can be sorted by your family. Had it been we were stranded, then we can start calling people to come and help us. That Muna didn't tell people he was sick is because he's a private person”.
She ended the interview by saying, “I am going to say this to anyone who says Muna didn't open up that he was sick - I'm going to use this thing - Fuck them! Now that he's dead, those people that said assuming he'd said he was sick they would have helped, did they come to contribute to his burial? Did they come to check on the family? They did not! We tried to handle, but God knows best”
