Life is Short


If you ever shook Dr. Robert Ouko’s hands, you knew he was a special person with a clean heart. I shook his hands just over 20 years ago along Koinange Street, Nairobi, on my way to an international Match between Harambee Stars of Kenya and the Pharaos of Egypt. He was alone—a free Kenyan who felt secure in his country. It must have been within weeks to his death. Twenty years is a short time; yet children born then are now mothers and fathers. Life is short; it need not be taken by another man’s hands for whatever reason.

RIP, Bob.
