The businessman Francis Kiambi’s first-born son has fondly recalled how his father gave him his first car when he was only 12 years old.
Ian Murithii claimed in a tribute to his late father that it was in great part due to his father’s efforts that he has become what he is today.
“I fondly remember when my dad bought me my first car, it was my dream to own a car and for my 12th birthday he bought me one. I feel lost and empty now that my father is gone,” Mr Murithii said.
The grieving son described how his late father always gave the family his best and used to take him to the best vacation spots.
He referred to his father as his best friend, someone who gave him lessons in life and helped shape the person he is today.
Murithii said despite his any shortcomings, his father never got angry at him and would always guide do him on what was right.
Kiambi died on Monday, January 9, 2023 at his Karen home at the age of 50. His family members, including his wife Ms Mary Muthoni, have paid glowing tribute to him.
In her tribute, Ms Muthoni said whenever she looks at their four children in the eyes all she sees is her deceased husband.
“Our family is our two sons, Ian and Brian, and our two daughters, Michelle and Jane, and every time I look into their eyes, I see parts of you. They are a testament of the love we shared,” she said.
