It is with great sadness that we have learnt that John died in a road accident on Wednesday 27 February 2019, hit by a matatu (a privately owned minibus) whilst on his way to the Kisumu National Polytechnic, Kondele, Kisumu.

As a boy, John was cared for by the Kanyawegi Children's Home for a period from 29 April 2003 - where his mother, Faridah Okello, worked as our House Mother.
