We called him Ricardo. Or simply Richie. He was young, friendly and full of life. Fun to work with, he loved to laugh and he loved his job.
Now, he is gone.
Exactly a week ago Richard Ngumwa was picked from our midst following a road accident.
He was on his way to work that fateful morning. The matatu he was traveling in hit a lorry.
And Richie was no more. What shock! What disbelief!
As we mourn the passing on of our colleague and friend, we the Bata Kenya family celebrate the time he spent with us, and continue praying for God’s consolation to his family.
Fare thee well Richie. You will be missed.
