..... Achieng’s death through social media a few days after they last talked.
“Only to hear now on social media that she passed away. I called immediately I saw the first note and too late her house help said it was true,” Ms Mtawali said.
She describes Achieng Abura as a “warrior, who was humble and wellread”. “She sang a song called the Spirit of a Warrior. She is a warrior. Achieng believed in herself. We have lost a true songstress, a mentor, a comic, smart intelligent, well read, humble, African queen.
“I learnt so much from her. She is the one who introduced me to the music scene. We were deep friends and she stood by me when I lost my brother.” “I have lost my angel. Before I was Principal she was. She was never jealous of me but would warn me when she saw danger. She guided me on every step I took.”
“She prepared me to take over from her and every show I did, she gave me feedback.” "I will miss her advice. She advised me even in the world of academia then I’d advice her on how to live life fully,” Principal Hellen and Achieng Abura played a prominent role in the talent show Tusker Project Fame as voice coaches.
