The body of media personality Anjlee Gadhvi was cremated on Saturday at the Kariokor Hindu Crematorium in Nairobi.
A funeral service was held on Saturday morning at the Lohana Hall opposite Nairobi Gymkhana on Forest Road before her body was incinerated. Anjelee, who worked as a news presenter at K24 TV, died on Friday afternoon while receiving treatment at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi.
Anjlee was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2013 but went public about it in 2015 after various treatment options drained funds raised by family and friends. Kenyans raised KSh6 million in hours after she appealed to well-wishers to help her raise funds for her treatment.
Anjlee later announced on social media that she had beaten the disease and was completely healed. In 2018, Anjlee flew to India for another treatment procedure known as the CyberKnife System, a fully robotic radiation delivery system that treats cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
She leaves behind a husband and two children.
