Ngash mother, Peace Wanjiku Nganga, also paid tribute to her son.

“I am here to celebrate, I am not sad I feel I am in another realm where I know the life of my son did not go for nothing. My son was prayed for by many people here and abroad for his health but God decided to answer take him away.”

She continued, “My golden jewel, Ngash, I loved you at birth and at transition. I saw my son fading into glory and I told him to tell Jesus I love him. We will see you again and our joy no one will take it away.”

Ngash’s brother, Hans Mwai also paid his tribute as tears rolled down his face.

“We also had a WhatsApp group it was just me and him. We used to call each other G. I would call him and tell him Niko down. He was the only one I could call and tell him this.

‘Niaje G uko na kakitu?’ this was the loan code of nipee doo itarudi but pia ujue haitarudi.”

He added, “The thing I would miss the most is when he would tell me “tulia G” you know in our household we were only two. He was the peace and I was the war.”

“I remember when I called him to tell him my wife was pregnant. Now, my son will share your birthday because my wife’s due date is your birthday. I pray he gets to have a kind and loving heart like yours. I love you G and I will miss you.”
