About two weeks ago 34 year old Captain Apollo Malowa and 5 other people travelling with him lost their lives after the helicopter they were travelling in crashed leaving no survivors.
The captain who is said to have been a man of the people sadly did not also make it alive and till date, the crash still remains a mystery to many. He was however laid to rest this past weekend in his home, Olago-Kamkwaya Village in Bondo, Siaya County where he was born and raised.
His funeral brought tears to his family and friends who were fond of him – as they tried to come into terms with the fact that they will not see him again. Among those who also attended the burial were two MPs, Bondo MP Gideon Ochanda and Siaya Woman Rep Christine Ombaka who knew him well and colleagues who described him as a passionate man and one who was talented pretty well.
His mother, Dorothy Akinyi also eulogized her late son saying:
“Most of his colleagues, friends and relatives loved him for his generosity and self-discipline. He could always announce his arrival in any town in Kenya on social media, asking whoever was around to join him,”
He might have left physically but those who knew him will keep his memory alive as he was a man who mingled with many and got to experience life on a higher level. Below are a few photos from his burial.
