Tony Ngare (pictured above), as he was fondly referred to as, has been eulogized in a moving speech made by Maina Kageni.
Ngare was a workmate of many at the Standard Group, where he served as the sub editor for the Pulse magazine.
Ngare was among the 32 Kenyans who died when the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines ET 302, crashed moments after take off on Sunday.
All passengers aboard the plane were confirmed dead.
Maina recalled his days with Ngare saying
It’s so harrowing, I can just imagine being in the plane.
I know Tony Ngare. I used to write the sports column on the Standard paper and when I ended my gig, he took over.
It’s just the saddest thing knowing there is nothing one can do.
It’s one of those things that haunts you coz you never know what to expect when boarding an aircraft.
Rest in peace Anthony Ngare.
To the families and friends, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
