Kevin died surrounded by his family and elder brothers Dennis Oliech and Ken, who were by his side until his last breath.

‘FROM THE DAY YOU GOT DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER I PROMISED YOU THAT I WILL ALWAYS BE BY YOUR SIDE, I MADE TRIPS TO BERLIN, GERMANY JUST TO SEE YOU WHEN YOU WERE GOING THROUGH ALL THE CHEMOTHERAPY SESSIONS. WE SHARED AMAZING MEMORIES TOGETHER AND THOSE MEMORIES SHALL FOREVER BE WITH ME. I KNOW DEEP DOWN IF I WAS IN YOUR POSITION YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME FOR ME,’ DENNIS WROTE IN PART.

According to former Harambee Stars captain Dennis Oliech, Kevin really suffered after he was diagnosed with cancer four years ago. He revealed he drove for over 16 hours to from UK to Germany to be with his brother.

LAST WEEK WHEN I DROVE FOR 16 HOURS AND 40 MINS FROM THE UK TO BE WITH YOU IN BERLIN. IT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND THAT I WOULD BE AT YOUR BEDSIDE UNTIL YOUR LAST BREATH THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WILL STICK WITH ME FOREVER. I SAW HOW YOU WERE STRUGGLING WITH PAIN EVERY DAY, EVEN WHEN YOU WERE WEAK YOU STILL SHOWED A BRAVE FACE.

Oliech added that days before Kevin died, they drove around Germany, listening to his favourite reggae song  Come down father by Beres Hammond, hoping he would get better.

WE WENT FOR A DRIVE AROUND BERLIN LISTENING TO OUR FAVOURITE REGGAE TUNE, COME DOWN FATHER BY BERES HAMMOND, AND ALL YOU DID WAS SMILE, EVEN WHEN YOU TOOK YOUR LAST BREATH.

He went ahead to narrate how Kevin died suddenly, saying he died wearing a smile. The talented footballer added that they played his favourite song on phone and put it next to his ear after he was gone.

KEN PLACED THE PHONE BESIDE YOUR EAR PLAYED THE SONG AS YOU LAID PEACEFULLY AND YOUR FACE GLOWED WITH A SMILE THAT’S WHAT I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER.

Below are the lyrics of the touching song

Wish it never had to be
The way I see
This world running, shouldn’t have to be
‘Cause now every man’s cup is filled with hate and overflowing
Father, ah nuff things ah gwan round ‘ya
It wickeder than before
We really check seh we coulda run things
But it nuh look so anymore, no
Come down Father, come down
Come down Father, come down
Oh I beg you come down Father
Come down, yeah ay
Come down Father, beg you come down
In my heart, I know that you won’t let
Your chosen people suffer (too long)
I know you will never let us down, no, no no no
Many times I coulda pick up a gun
I coulda go out a street and play Big John
That’s no fun no, sure ain’t no fun, oh no, ’cause I think
What would happen if the other man
Thinks the same? Then bullets fall like rain
It’s no fun…

Oh I see greed and I see selfishness
Every man is for himself
Only you can talk to them Father
‘Cause they listen to no one else, no
Come down Father, come down
I beg you come down Father, come down
Oh to the hearts of those responsible
Let them know their actions are despicable
Remind them that is you who wears the crown
Come down Father, come down, yes
I beg you come down Father, come down
Oh come down Father, come down, yes
Come down Father, come down
Watching the time, how the people are moving
And ‘membering to myself
Oh, unto the ones who think you can do these wrongs and get away
Woe unto you, and watch out for your day
I wish it never had to be
the way I see, this world running
Shouldn’t have to be
’cause now everyone’s cup is full with hate and overflowing
Father, ah nuff things ah gwan round ‘ya
It wickeder than before
We really check seh we coulda run things
But it nuh look so anymore, no
Come down Father, come down
Come down Father, come down
Father, come down Father, come down, yes
Come down Father, come down
Come down Father, come down
Come down Father, come down
