In Memory of Ken Walibora.

Ken Walibora, Kenyan Novelist, Dies in Accident - Communal News

My tribute to Ken Walibora; A writer of great distinction.

When he dies, all things soft and beautiful and bright would be buried with him.

Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles.

I can’t find the right words to send you to the skies,
My heart is still weeping and the pain cuts through so tight,
Why did you have to fly now?
When I was still walking in the dreams of meeting you,
When that “good day” was far ahead of me,
Death has taken my Shakespeare, My Idol in Kiswahili,
Forever you will live in our hearts to inspire,
May the road rise up to meet you and the winds always are at your back,
Rest in Peace Soldier, soldier on with your words even in the afterlife.
