Kenya mourns departed events organizer Big Kev

Messages of condolences from friends and colleagues of Kevin Ombajo continue to flow on social media following the death of the renowned events organiser.

Following news of his death on Saturday evening, the hashtag #RIPBigKev has been trending on Twitter.

On Facebook similar goodwill messages have been shared by prominent showbiz personalities and his close friends.
