Local rock band loses founding member

24 July 2014, 14:34 Eugana Odanga

Nairobi - On a sad note, one of Kenya’s premier rock bands has lost its founding member due to a tragic accident that happened in Karen earlier in the week.

The Band called Dove Slimme came out in a blog post to honour their fallen founding member who passed away after a fatal motorbike accident, just two weeks after he started riding. The rocker called Harun Ombaye Getui succumbed to his injuries after a collision with a motor vehicle.

In the blog post, the group’s leader Saidumu Kiereini wrote “As one of the founding fathers of Dove Slimme he was there with me at our very first battle of the bands at Rezorus and the Showdown at the Godown (when our drummer bailed on us and we found Josh in the audience).

" Even after he left the band he was still such a part of the family. He turned up for our shows, helped out where he could and even MC’d at our EP launch, because he was just that kind of guy: Full of warmth, courage and positive vibes. Nothing was impossible when he had your back, he mourned.

Harun has been mourned across social media, and quite heavily by the biker community who have just bounced back from the loss of their close friend Asif earlier in the month. The group attended a prayer meeting to seek God’s blessings and favour over the bikers in their small community.

May he rest in peace.
