A memorial service is planned for the late sports journalist Sean Cardovillis.
The event will take place today Friday, September 22 at the Consolata Shrine in Westlands.
Cardovillis's body was cremated last Thursday in Kariokor at a private event.
The service will serve as a poignant moment for family, friends, colleagues, and fans to remember and celebrate the life of the renowned sports broadcaster.
Cardovillis, 50, known for his charismatic and insightful sports reporting, died on Saturday, September 9, at his home in Westlands, Nairobi.
The cause of his death is yet to be disclosed. His family expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the overwhelming support and love they have received from the public during this difficult time.
Cardovillis’ body was discovered outside his Westlands residence on Saturday, September 9.
The discovery was made by a cleaner who stumbled upon his lifeless body on the staircase leading to his apartment on the fourth floor.
The Seychellois journalist, who had returned to Capital FM after 18 years, lived alone along Rhapta Road, Westlands. Police say preliminary findings show he died shortly after 6 am as he left for a bicycle ride.
After closing the door, he collapsed outside his fourth-floor house and was carrying his bicycle downstairs. His body was discovered two hours later by the cleaner.
It is believed that is the time Cardovillis also left the house and collapsed dead at the staircase.
He was born at the War Memorial Hospital in Nakuru on February 23, 1973.
He was the first child of George and Frances Cardovillis, who were then residents on their family farm Campi ya Simba in Laikipia District.
Two years later, they were blessed with a sister to Sean, Maritza Rose.
