Award-winning actor Pascal Tokodi has penned a touching message to Dr Stephen Mogusu, his former schoolmate at Lenana High School.
The 28-year-old succumbed to Covid-19 while receiving treatment in the ICU ward at Kenyatta University Teaching Research and Referral Hospital.
‘I knew Steph in highschool, Lenana School, a year ahead of me, soft-spoken, reserved and very smart, living up to the school motto, Nihil Praeter Optimum (Nothing But The Best) May you rest Changerian, keep the fire burning 🙏The class of 2011 is doing a fundraiser for the hospital bill and for the family. If you would like to send any contribution, kindly contact Oscar Ochieng +254 713 406030, My fellow laibon 🙏 any contribution will be greatly appreciated 🙏’ read Pascal’s message.
Dr Mogusu scored straight As at Lenana and joined University of Nairobi School of Medicine.
