Juzi tu i passed by the Safaricom shop at I & M and saw his advertisement…and I thought “this guy has grown through the years”. Rest in peace
Farewell Charles Bukeko, your memories lingers on with me as we acted at Kenya National Theater. You did well.
Omwami real men don’t die but they pass the mantle to the other side of the world we will really miss you.
Rest in peace Papa…you was such an inspiration to many people we have lost a very iconic man as Kenyans…May his soul rest in peace
And yet, as with many more before you, I didn’t get to say this when you were here, and now you won’t see this tweet: thank you for bringing sunshine and laughter to our lives. Go well, Papa. Till we meet again.
This guy was a major snob. He would not respond to greetings from us “mere mortals” hapo kwa street.
Ooh! Was just reading about how he had risen to stardom from humble beginnings and sharing his story with our kids! May the Lord God almighty comfort his family and friends. He modeled grit, determination and humility
