"It is with deep shock and incredibility that I have learnt of the sudden demise of my Cousin Dr. Professor Josepph Omuke Ojiambo.
In early seventies, Joseph helped strongly build the then Undugu Youth Centeres and the Undugu Beat'75, of which I was general Secretay in Kariobangi. We visited each other abroad both in France and Lafbourough, UK. He has helped me from this end assist project in Budalangi, Bunyala Location, Busia South.
Dr. Professor Joseph Oumke Ojiambo, a wonderful person, ever ready to help, advise accurately, sincerely with devotion to any person. Always had time for others. He had a fine belief in sharing. Both in euocumenic groups such as Upendo wa Mungu group (Nairobi) and Taizé Community (France).
I know whatever words I can express here are not enough to wind up in one word the person he was. I can only say : THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR EARTHLY CONTRIBUTION? DR. PROFESSOR JOSEPH OMUKE OJIAMBO;
