Let us hon­our our heroes while they are alive, not dead

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

On Mashu­jaa Day, we cel­e­brated in­di­vid­u­als who have pos­i­tively im­pacted so­ci­ety. Their pa­tri­o­tism and ef­forts erned them the ad­mi­ra­tion from many, es­pe­cially the youth. How­ever, we should not only cel­e­brate these heroes and hero­ines when they are dead. In­stead, we should recog­nise and re­ward them when they are still alive. Un­for­tu­nately, many of them die in poverty or af­ter go­ing through a lot of hard­ship. Such was the case for Africa’s cel­e­brated artist Achieng’ Abura who died on Mashu­jaa Day.
