Actress Sandra Dacha revisits her dad’s mysterious death

Father’s Day is an important occasion that celebrates and honors fathers and father figures in our lives. It is a time when people show appreciation and gratitude for the love, care, guidance and sacrifices fathers make for their children. During this day celebrated annually on the third Sunday of June, family bonds are strengthened as the father’s influential role in their children’s lives is especially highlighted.

On the flip side, Father’s Day can also be emotionally challenging for children who lost their fathers or simply had no father figure in their lives. This day is a reminder of their absence and can evoke a range of emotions such as sadness, grief, and longing. The experience can vary greatly from person to person, as everyone copes with loss differently.

One such person who particularly endures a difficult Father’s Day is actress Sandra Dacha, famously known for her role in Aunty Boss comedy show. In a heart wrenching statement, Sanda Dacha revisited her father’s mysterious death after drinking a bottle of soda in Nairobi’s Central Business District.

“Happy Father’s Day to Mr Ernest Dacha in heaven! These pictures were taken in the year 1990 when KICC (Kenyatta International Convention Center) was KICC, when Railways Club was Railways Club and when Tom Mboya was Tom Mboya😁🤣😹
