I’d be lying if i say i had not thought of this dreadful moment before in my miserable life. These moments were met with fear, a lot of confusion and deep sorrow that would choke me every time it happened. On Tuesday at 4.00pm sited and just concluding of what would be a successful day,i had the untimely call. Guka is gone.
Ofcourse i cried, went wild, asked so many why!! Seriously and honestly speaking I have not only lost my grand dad I’ve also lost one of my best friend and fan. He was amazing and beautiful in his own way. So calm and so peaceful. The peace that makes you question. This is one man i knew so well and had a very deep relationship with. Am proud that i am named after him. I am also proud that he shared with me his deep secrets.
I recall the good old days when he would drive singing kikuyu songs. Especially that ‘Abijan ti kudu kunene’ This would be met by my disapproval. He was hilarious in his own way. we laughed to our own stupid jokes, talked about people and once in a while he would throw his politics in there.
we did not miss each other while we were away from each other but when we were together we had quite the chemistry. I will remember how he would listen to me and really tried to please me in all ways he could.
This is a very dark moment in my life and i believe i shall overcome. He believed in my dream and believed in everything i did. I am happy to say that i was able to run errands for him, advise him on some business decisions and later pay myself using his credit(lol)
Guka was my dad and hence we fought when he did not take care of himself. I’d say to him ‘while am away please take care of yourself’
I am very happy to know that he really loved me and that i have his blessing in life. Not long ago he told me that he knew that i love him very much and for sure i do. I pray that all will be well and my family will stick together during this trying moment. I am and remain strong.
May His soul rest in peace.
love you so much Guka….xoxo
