She died last week

The Managing Director, who is married to Bonfire C.E.O Simon Kabu, revealed with agony how much she had missed her for the one week she passed on.

Third baby

Mrs Kabu, conveyed the message through her Instagram account referring to her mother as her third child that she loved to spoil.

“Tommorrow...How do I say goodbye to you my friend... I loved you so much. I already miss you so badly for the 1 week you have been away... You had become my 3rd baby whom I loved to spoil... I can't believe you are gone forever ,” she captioned.

Proverbs 31 woman

On his part Simon revealed the advice she gave him when he went to ask for her daughter’s hand in marriage.

“Today I just want to celebrate this beautiful woman who raised my wife to be like the proverbs 31 woman... aka "mutumia ngatha". My wife is just a replica of her... kind, honest, intelligent hardworking go-getter. I will never forget the day I went with my family to ask her for her daughter's hand in marriage. I was just a hustler without much to offer for dowry as it is a tradition.

“She just told me not to worry much but give what I have, however little i had ...what she was more interested in was to see her daughter settle in her own home and raise a family in peace love and unity... Mali tutafute pamoja. FARE THE WELL MAMA no more pain and suffering. I had promised you ukipona we will go to Israel pamoja to see where the Jesus you love so much was born but now I believe you are dancing with Jesus and the Angels in heaven. Mum i will be forever indebted unto you ,” he posted.

The Bonfire Adventures C.E.O met his wife Sarah through Google groups back in the day. The two went through difficult times before finally managing to open Bonfire Adventures travel company.
