0 1

Heartbreaking new details have emerged after the death of a COVID-positive woman who became the fifth person in NSW to die from the virus in the current outbreak.

Saeeda Akobi Jjou Stu, the mother of two removalists who allegedly travelled to regional New South Wales despite knowing they had tested positive to COVID, died at the family’s Green Valley home on Monday.

Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said authorities were aware she had also tested positive to the virus before her death.

She added the family were offered care and transport to another venue for their isolation period.

“They made the decision to stay at home,” Chant said, adding there was an outreach service offering care to them.

Saeeda’s twin sons Roni and Ramsin Shawka were charged by NSW Police over their movements on Saturday.

The pair, along with a third man, are accused of driving from West Hoxton to Figtree, then onto Molong while making several stops at South Bowenfels and Orange, after being notified they had tested positive to COVID.

Tributes flow

In a post to social media, Roni wrote that his mother, who was aged in her 50s, was his “comfort” and “life”.

“Mama, my love, you are my life, Mama, you are my comfort and my life,” he wrote.

On Tuesday, Ramsin changed his Facebook profile picture to that of his mum, attracting dozens of tributes and comments from mourners.

“May her soul rest in peace,” one person said.

Another mourner described Saeeda as having a “sweet laugh”.

Saeeda’s community, the Batnaya Chaldean Association, also paid tribute to her.

“The deceased has passed away in Sydney, a Patriot of Adel Habo Belhad Shuka’s wife and mother of Rommel Roni Ramsen Rita Ranin Shuka,” the organisation wrote on Facebook, in a post translated from Arabic.
