The devastated father of twins who were killed by their mother has written a heart breaking poem ahead of Father’s Day, on Sunday.

Steven Ford, 35, was father to 23-month-old toddlers Chloe and Jake who were found dead on December 27 after their mother Samantha Ford, 38, killed them.

5 easy ways to enjoy yourself on a night out at the club

Months ago, the mother of one had penned an emotional open letter calling out her baby daddy for pushing her to terminate the pregnancy.

The detailed letter was however deleted by the damsel for reasons well known to her.

Bridget wrote,

I don’t know what made you go away. I don’t know what made you run I don’t know if it’s people… till today I don’t really understand what runs in your mind wherever you are.

I’ve heard news that you are in South Africa you had to leave Kenya, you know, after you told me to remove my pregnancy at 3 months.

I was all alone, disturbed, I was depressed but today I’m seated here to write my story yet again.

An open letter from Bridget Achieng to her baby daddy

She went on to add,

I don’t know what made you go away. I don’t know what made you run away. I kept looking at myself in the mirror and asking if I am ugly.

Bridget has deleted the video off her YouTube platform. Probably because she did not want her son to grow up to see the pain his father caused her.

Or probably the message got to the required recipient and so its use on social media was redundant.

Too Emotional! Gospel Singer Alice Kamande Remembers Her Late Father In A Tear-Jerking Tribute

June 2011 was the saddest and the most painful day for gospel singer Alice Kamande after she lost her dear father.

Gideon Kamande passed away after a terminal illness. He was also the father-in-law to singer-turned-producer and artiste manager Robert Kamanzi, aka R Kay, who is married to one of his daughters, Susan Kamande.

The Groove Award winner, who is also a dancer and a fashion designer, also makes jewellery and, over the years, she has proven to be one of the most talented and humble Kenyan artistes in the local music scene.

Kamande1

On June 18, Alice Kamande did not celebrate Father’s Day like everyone else whose father is still alive, but she jotted down a touching tribute, thanking her father for teaching her the most important things in life: “Words of wisdom, his presence, care and love and above all, teaching me the word of God.”

Drama Free! Top 10 Kenyan Gospel Artistes Who Have Managed To Keep Scandals Away

Here’s part of the long post:

I’m ever grateful to God for having met and spend time with my dad Gideon when He was alive. He was my great strength and pillar.I can attest to this, that I am a product of a man who lived a selfless life and worked tireless to provide ,a true man of valour, but there’s one thing that im ever grateful to have acquired from him and it’s not wealth , it’s the words of wisdom, his presence ,care and love and above all teaching me the word of God . This is the man who led me to Chris ,when I was only 12years old.

Kamande went on to reveal that in that same month, it was the last time she had spent Father’s Day with her dad, but little did she know that it would be the last time.

The celebrated singer went on to reveal that despite the heartache of losing a father, she found solace knowing that he’s in heaven, looking down on her:

On a day like this (Father’s day) 2011 was the last time we celebrated Father’s day with him and a few days later ,went to be with the Lord. It was one of the most devastating time of my life . “A hero was never ment to die”.So I thought to myself. But since then my Father in heaven stepped up his game and took his role and remind me . That I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am the father to the fatherless and a husband to the widows. I know His word is true .
I salute all the dads who try, who fight so hard for their families like Worriors to instill discipline, good character, provide and become the priest to their homes.
You play a great role in our families and society at large.
We are who we are because of who you are ,you are great role models .God bless all the fathers and fathers to be. Much love.

Rest In Peace, Gideon Kamande.
