Hannah Mwikamba (second from right), mother of Esther Wanjiru Mwikamba, interacts with members of the Kenyan community in Dubai. When she is not by Esther’s side, she reportedly sits in the lobby and weeps silently.

GULF NEWS: Dubai: Though she could neither speak nor respond cognitively, coma patient Esther Wanjiru Mwikamba’s “tears’ said it all.

The Kenyan assault victim’s condition has “improved” these past few days, her family said. Esther’s mother, Hannah, arrived from Kenya early morning on Friday to be by her bedside.

“It [mom’s presence] makes her better. It’s positive because you can see Esther crying,” Lucy, Esther’s younger sister, told Gulf News during a visit at the Intensive Care Unit in Rashid Hospital.

A rosary lies on top of Esther’s chest for continued protection. She has been on life support since February 18 after being brutally assaulted by a man in a parking lot in Dubai. The case is still under police investigation.

While Esther’s brain activity has diminished, according to the doctors, Lucy believes that her sister could still hear them.

“Even if her eyes are closed, you’ll see tears drop. But when you ask the nurses, they’ll tell you it’s just fluid. But we believe it’s tears,” Lucy said. “It started when I arrived. Like yesterday, the whole day she was crying. I know she’s in too much pain.”

Mother’s arrival

When Hannah arrived past midnight on Friday, she did not waste time and headed straight to Rashid Hospital which granted the family’s request to see Esther.

“They only gave us 10 minutes, but it went for 30 minutes. It was very difficult [for our mom to leave the room]; I had to beg her,” Lucy said.

Hannah’s first words to Esther were still fresh in Lucy’s memory. “She talked to her, begging her to wake up. She told her, “You are my daughter, my first born, it doesn’t matter how you are, and how you’re gonna be after waking up. But we love you so much and the moment you wake up, I’ll take you back home,” Lucy said, adding that they prayed together and anointed Esther with oil before leaving her side.

Lucy has not stopped believing that Esther, who put her through college and the family’s sole breadwinner, will soon wake up.

Hope lingers

“By the grace of God, the situation is okay. We are just waiting for God’s time for her to eventually wake up and we’ll all go back home to Kenya,” Lucy said.

Hannah has been emotional since she saw Esther. When she’s not by Esther’s side, she would sit in the lobby and silently weep. Her hands remain clasped all the time and she would whisper prayers for Esther.

God is so present in my life! I have recoverede fully but my left leg and hand are still numb, but am coping!THanks for your well wishes! Esther will surely get bwell. I have no doubt about that

        I remember you Elizabeth Kogo. We prayed for you even when you went into a coma and some doubted you will make it. But we serve an awesome God and here you are back on this very forum that brought us close to you when you did not even know so many were praying for you. The same God who healed you is the same God who will heal Esther. May I also take a chance to say Thank you to Jambonewspot for keeping us updated on Miss Esther. I now feel like I know Esther and I feel like I have a personal stake in her health. You kept us abreast of Elizabeth Kogo’s situation and subsequent recovery and now she is commenting on the same forum. Good job Jambo and God bless.

        And this is yet another reason why I trust in this faithful God. He will never let us down nor forsake us. I am glad you are doing well my dear. Thanks for sharing with us. I just can’t stop these tears of joy and I know in due time, we will get to hear Esther’s voice as well for he is faithful and just. My dear, may you gain full recovery in Jesus name.
