Maisha paid a glowing tribute to her grandfather, noting that the patriarch was a pilar in their lives and accompanying the same with family pictures taken during happier times.

She shared family pictures of a happier time when he was alive.

"Babu Yangu. This is how I picked up the phone each time you called me. What a joy it was to say those two simple words. I had my Babu on my side always, and no one could tell me anything.

“I knew that as long as I had my Babu, I was on the winning team—loving me, encouraging me, supporting me, and praying for me." Maisha noted.

She shared that news of his death struck her hard, adding that she is struggling to come to terms with the same.

"I’ll miss hearing you say ‘Njo uguze kihara ndo ukule nyama leo.’ We shared so many smiles, laughs, jokes, and inside jokes, Babu Yangu, that I will dearly miss. You were such a distinguished gentleman, and you knew it! I couldn’t have asked for a better person to call the best grandfather and best friend a girl could ask for.

“Thank you for the wisdom you shared with me in your last few months, as well as the endless love and blessings you spoke over me, and my partner @nviirithestoryteller who you were so fond of and our household. Until we meet again, Babu Yangu." Added the wildlife conservation advocate.

On his part, Nviiri mourned the deceased who he referred to as “jamaa wangu” with a message that read:

"Fare well jamaa wangu."

"A man of honor in all that he did”.
