Celebrated media personality, Larry Madowo joined many other Kenyans in the Father’s day celebration marked on Sunday 16 June with an emotional message to his late dad.
Taking to his Instagram, the BBC Africa Business Editor expressed how his dad loved them despite the short time he spent with his family, while hoping that his father would be proud of what he has become.
“It’s been 25 years since my dad left this world. I was just a little boy but I knew he loved us and he spoiled us rotten. It was almost as if he understood that he wouldn’t be with us for long. The years after weren’t always easy but I think we’ve made him proud #HappyFathersDay,” he wrote.
The former NTV journalist’s fans joined in to help him celebrate his late father with messages of condolence and encouragement.
