Youth Fund CEO EVANS GOR SEMELANGO shares his life encounter with the late blogger ROY OGOLLA …. So Touching!!!!!!
Last week, the blogging community lost a fiery blogger cum activist, Roy Ogolla through a tragic road accident. Roy was behind the leaked photos of Mike Sonko and Rachael Shebesh that went viral and created a lot of talk in town.
Youth fund Ceo, Evans Gor Semalango is among the people emotionally affected by Roy’s death and here is what he had to say about the late blogger;
Roy Ogolla Kohadha literally walked into my private offices without an appointment for a job he confessed he didnt have papers for! neither did he have a sound formal education he further told me! He just wanted to be an investigative journalist! He convinced me to give him a chance and I did. The Editor for my publication, needed more convincing, I did that on behalf of Roy.The guy was a genious! He didnt let me down.
He was rebelious by nature as witnessed when he was arrested twice both ending at kilimani cop station. After i intervened for his release, The OCPD called to ask whether i knew the man who has refused to identify himself and yet i wanted him released! I said yes to the amazement of the officer.
Like Mandela Roy demanded unconditional release.To cut the long story short! We met last at KNT where he reminded me i owe him a drink together with Adhiambo opondo,Here was a man who lived his life with determination to change things and was ready to pay the price.A very sad,tragic and untimely death of yet another talented & promising young Kenyan. R.I.P Kohash!
