Friday, September 10, 2021 – CNN journalist, Larry Madowo, was overcome with grief while paying tribute to his grandmother, Fransesca Madowo, who succumbed to Covid-19 related complications last month.
He shared a video addressing mourners who had gathered to pay their last respects at the funeral in Siaya County.
While addressing mourners in fluent Luo, the seasoned TV journalist said he shared a close relationship with his grandmother.
“You’ve heard that I am always called Omondi, only my grandmother used to refer to me as Omondi. She was so close to my heart.
“Whenever I visited her, she would scold me for not greeting her back when she waved at me as I was presenting on TV.
“She thought that I was able to see her and that I could wave back,” Larry narrated amid sobs.
He revealed that his late grandmother single-handedly took care of him and his other cousins who had lost their parents.
He termed his grandmother’s burial as the saddest day of his adult life.
