Media personality Mary Njambi Koikai’s father Daniel Koikai has apologized to her for not being fully present in her life when she was alive.

Mr Koikai, Jahmby’s dad paid tribute to his late daughter and used the opportunity to apologize and ask for forgiveness from her.

He acknowledged his shortcomings as a parent as he eulogized his daughter with a heavy heart.  

“Dear Njambi my daughter, the time has come for me to atone for my acts of omission or commission on your final journey from this world it has been one of the most difficult episodes in my life, especially for your close family members - your mother, sister aunts, uncles and colleagues in the media and friends in and out of the country,” Daniel Koikai said.

“I will remember you in many ways and I ask here in public where I may not have fulfilled my duties as your Dad please forgive me, forgive me, and forgive me. And I pray that your soul will rest in Eternal Peace. Till we meet again bye-bye,”.

In a separate Eulogy, Mr Koikai also shared the final special moments he had with his late daughter Njambi.

He described their relationship as having both good and bad times, noting that they only met when Njambi was in high school because he was working abroad during her childhood.

“When times were good, we would go shopping and have lunch at some restaurants in the city, and you enjoyed meeting me very much. I deeply miss the good times we shared together.

During the bad times, we would go days or months without talking, something I blame myself for and will always regret as I’ve lost the chance to make things right with you,” Mr. Koikai wrote.

The businessman went on to reveal a message his daughter sent him just a day before she died.

In her message, Njambi, who was in the hospital at the time, expressed her gratitude to her father and listed a few items she wanted him to bring her.

“Hi Dad, I hope you got home safely. So I would need red berry orange water from Del Monte and fresh orange and passion fruit juice. The doctors are here, so I’ll have to go and we’ll talk tomorrow. It was good to see you and reconnect,” Njambi’s message to her father read.

The late Njambi told her parents about unity and appreciating her father's presence.

“In the hospital near your bed with your mother, the night you left us, you told me that we are one blood and you were happy I came. We reconnected and I hope we will reconnect again one day,” Mr. Koikai revealed.

On Friday the 14th, Njambi Koika will finally be laid to rest. Her burial will take place in Lang'ata from 10 am.
