Rita Oyier and the late Michael Oyier

Kirinyaga County Chief of Staff Rita Oyier has penned heartfelt letter to late journalist Michael Oyier.

Taking to her socials, Rita went down the memory lane, to reminisce on the good times she shared with the departed journalist.

She also tried to address the confusion that surrounded her friendship with Oyier due to the resemblance in their Surnames.

Rita says that people always wanted to know if she was a sister or a wife to Michael Oyier since they shared a surname.

Here is Rita Oyier's open letter to Michael Oyier;

Good morning Michael Oyier,

I hope this little letter finds you at peace. You left me answering this all the time everywhere question that we have laughed over for 20 years ! Are you Michaels Sister... Or are you his wife? What is in a name though?

You did well man, so proud of you, your faithfulness, your honesty. How you walked with a wise bare soul always reflecting and speaking your truth.

You remained kind in this harsh world and a gentleman where roughnecks rule. And by being so you allowed us to choose you and keep you.

Oh you truly earned your office as a heart man, you held many bleeding and broken hearts Mike. Speaking to them in that delightful voice. Patiently, Calmly and truthfully always.

Especially when truth was not the easy way out. There was nothing we could not laugh over from when I was a 'blazing ball of fire' permanently wearing jeans with my spiky baby locks, to when I was a heartbroken mother, to when I was an ambitious grown woman.

And from when you tried not to break hearts and sometimes failed miserably, to when you had to work through careers and being a present amazing dad.

You laughed at me, I laughed at you, we refused to count babies and we held onto the purity of love.

You were always there and always journeyed to where I was. There was nowhere that was too far for you to come. And that you did despite anything you were going through.

And for many others too. You donated your brothers and I donated my sisters and that was final.

I am sure they all wondered how they came to be. So we go on Mike. With you. Not a moment without you. Loudly Loved forever by all of us who shared this name that you carried with pride and honour. Rita Oyier 🤍💜🤎🖤.
