Kenyan Man in a Coma in Des Moines, Iowa, Wife Appeals for Help

Printer-friendly versionPDF version
Mike Wasike

The wife of a Kenyan man in Des Moines, Iowa beaten unconscious in a carjacking last week is seeking financial help from the community with the mounting medical bills for the husband as he remain in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Mike Wasike, 36, was headed home from one of his two jobs on February 26 when he was attacked and robbed of his car and cell phone. A passerby noticed him lying motionless on the street and called 911. He has been in a medical coma since then, and his wife, Joan Namachemo says he faces a long road to recovery and will likely need long-term care for serious brain injuries sustained in the attack.

Police have offered a $3,000 for information that leads to the arrest of suspect(s), but say they won’t have solid leads until Wasike is well enough to tell them what happened or someone comes forward with a tip.

The couple has two children - a 12-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son.

The family has set up two bank accounts for those who would like to help with the mounting bills:

Bank of America:
Account Number: 445001151791, Routing Number: 073000176

Wells Fargo:
Account Number: 8389851810, Routing Number: 073000228
