"The day when he left me alone, I was 12 years old. Just one last chance I wish I could get to hug him, then I would hold him tight and never let him go. It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes my father priceless. I never knew that being fatherless, would make me feel so aimless, worthless, powerless, heartless and helpless. I still miss him. The greatest gift that ever came from God and I call Him Dad."

"GOSPEL ON A CAMEL BACK; Remembering Bishop Rev Adano Tuye.

On 27 July 1996 the nation woke up to sad news of  a government helicopter went down in ashes. It happened just as they were about to land in Marsabit.

Those on board were government ministers, member of parliaments, provincial Commissioner and the first Nomadic Anglican Bishop Rev Adano Tuye. He was tall and well framed with dream of leading his people to the fountain of peace. He was born and raised into a polygamous family. His father wanted him to become a teacher.

Through the influence of the missionaries he answered the call. He joined God in His mission among the gabra, the borana, the rendile, the burji and other tribes of Northern Kenya. Through quality  education he was prepared for   for the ups and downs in a life-long journey of service to the Lord.

They died on a worthy cause. Bishop Adano had devoted his energy and calling to further peace and reconciliation amongst the Nomads of Northern Kenya. Something he did with passion commitment

Many years later I found myself serving in Marsabit on pastoral service and I could tell the Impact you had left for your People. Your life has stood out as beacon of hope, source of inspiration whose example is worth emulating

At that time, your dream was a Camel on which you rode to share the transformation news. And you travel locally and internationally as an emissary of Christ.

The example set to us by Bishop Adano is that of selfless service, devotion to peace among the Nomads and pastoralist community. He embodies virtues that set him above but ordinary. He was a true definition of servanthood. He was readily available for the master service

Though long gone, it's encouraging to see the tremendous growth of Christianity amongst the communities of Northern Kenya.  20 years later a nomad was elected to be the Archbishop of the Church you treasured.

Rest In Peace Ambassador of Peace."
