Media personality Jeff Koinange has vowed to rename a library that was being built in his honour after Ken Okoth after he passed on.
According to Jeff that is the only way he can mourn and celebrate the leader known to many as ‘Kiongozi’ for his down to earth nature.
A very SAD day…Ken Okoth was a GREAT man..
A FIGHTER…A great LEADER…We were just about to LAUNCH the “Jeff Koinange LIBRARY” at Mbagathi Girls in Kibra…
In HONOR of Ken, I will rename it “KEN OKOTH LIBRARY…Rest in Peace Bro..Till we MEET
It is barely a month since Jeff Koinange lost his best friend Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore after he succumbed to cancer.
Among the few things that Ken Okoth mostly wished for is to see Kenya making cancer treatment a priority.
Ken had in the past confessed that unlike what many people know cancer changes a person’s life.
In an interview with Word Is, Jeff said,
“It’s been more than two weeks now but it has not yet hit me that he is gone. Sometimes, I still sit down and imagine Bob walking in and asking us how we are doing. ‘Hey guys did you miss me?'”
If there is one thing he wishes he had told Bob, it is how great a human being he was.
“Bob always told us that he was not perfect, but that he learnt from his faults and mistakes,” he said.
