Elvis Kabui “Seaman” will be buried tomorrow. During the last one week, I have listened to different people talking about him. Without no doubt he was one of the best upcoming goalkeepers in Kawangware.

He was such a hardworking and humble boy. He worked so hard for change within himself, the community and his family. I’m glad that to some extend he realized it.

Here are some of his pictures during his in FIKISHA

Rest in Peace…

We are sad to announce the sudden death of Elvis Kabue. He was shot dead by the police yesterday at night just some few Kilometers from Kawangware.

Elvis Kabue was one of the first FIKISHA boys to be rehabilitated from the streets and reintegrated back to their family.  During his death, Elvis was waiting to receive the results of the just concluded Kenya Certificate of Primary Education. He decided to go back to school after a period of more than 9 years out of school. He struggled so much to realize his dreams and goals, and it’s with sad note that his dreams and goals were cut short by the bullets.

For the past one week, Elvis was serving the Kawangware Community at the Medical Camp which was held at Kawangware Lutheran Church from 14th – 19th November 2010. He assisted more than thousands who came at the Eye Clinic. Most of the patients were amazed to see him serving them. They couldn’t believe that a street boy could change so rapid and be so much important to the community. After the eye clinic, he received his Certificate of Appreciation from the LCMS Ablaze Kenyan Team Leader.

Moments later he went back home, and told his parents that he was going to visit his friends. We aren’t sure why he was killed or how it was done, but all that we found out from City Mortuary is that he and his two friends were shot several times by the police. We are working together with the police and the local administration to find out what happened.

May God grant their family and his FIKISHA friends’ Peace at this sad moment.
