Daniel Koikai: Njambi Koikai’s Father Apologizes For Not Being in Her Childhood in Emotional Tribute

Late media personality Njambi Koikai’s father, Daniel Koikai, has apologized to her daughter for not being in her life during her formative years.

Speaking during her memorial on Thursday, Daniel used the opportunity to issue the apology and acknowledge his shortcomings as a parent.

He also noted how Njambi’s death has affected not only her close relatives but also people who knew her for her work in the media.

“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,” he said.

Daniel re-emphasized his apology saying, “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.”

Just recently, Daniel reflected on moments he shared with Njambi, explaining that although they did not have the best relationship, they loved each other.

He also disclosed that he first met Njambi while she was in high school because he was working abroad by the time she was born.

“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,” Daniel said.

Daniel also mentioned that Njambi was happy to see him and her mother come together to support her at the time that she needed them the most.

“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,” he shared.

Njambi who was famed for his radio career passed away on Tuesday morning, June 4, at a Nairobi hospital while undergoing treatment.

She will be buried at Lang’ata Cemetery on Friday, May 14.
