Larry Madowo has announced that he is taking a much needed break from work to take care of his family.

Madowo's family is going through a tough period after he revealed that his grandmother had contracted Covid-19.

Taking to Twitter, Madowo wrote;

It’s been emotionally draining for me to talk about this story in such personal terms. I’m now pulling back to look after myself and care for my family. Please say a prayer for my grandma.

Speaking to CNN, a few days ago, the seasoned Journalist said that every time he sees a call from home, his heart sinks.

“I always fear that they're ringing to say that my grandmother has died. She has been on a ventilator for four weeks and my anxiety is near breaking point,” he said.

“By the time my grandmother got vaccinated by local officials it was already too late as she had been infected by Covid-19,” he said adding that she outlived her husband by more than 25 years.

We are wishing Larry Madowo's grand mother a quick recovery.
