Rest In Eternal Peace JULIUS WANGORE 



Uncle Jul alias Chef Omosh has left us. His departure has left us in pain that can only be consoled by the most generous deeds, projects and cause he believed in enough to dedicate his entire life to it. The cause to feed the homeless and fight for the less privileged.

He had complained about the muscle pains and shared this with his fans on Facebook. “The pain on my left thigh emanates from The Spinal Cord Disk. After 2 injections of painkillers, the pain went and is back now. No folding or stretching left leg, Dose for 2weeks. In the first week, I shall be fine. I can’t sit or stand for long, I am just lying in bed. Remember me in your prayers. Thank for the quick response.”

He will always be remembered as a good man that championed for the Homeless of Mombasa. Julius Wangore through his Charity Foundation delivered an uncountable number of meals to people in the streets, feed the homeless, clothed the homeless and housed many needy and orphans in Mombasa County.

Julius did not just speak about things, he went an extra mile to mobilize others to deliver towels for girls, he spoke for downtrodden and walked streets, villages and everywhere sharing whatever he had.

“I remember when he visited our project in Riverbank Slums in Soweto— he had a few sanitary towels with him- Which he happily shared with the women present. He never walked empty-handed when going to visit projects or communities. It’s sad that Julius Wangore has left us so soon. As a friend and someone who saw him advocate for others wellbeing-I mourn him with a heavy heart.” Zacchaeus Ogonji mourned Uncle Jul.

“I am dedicating one week (7days) to mourn my departed friend Julius Wangore so kindly spare the time to mourn with my colleagues ( MOBA) Miwani Old Boys Association. Being a friend for over 25 years is not a joke. I had more than a hundred classmates but July wuod Ligega could only compare to a few. Don’t cross my line in the week ahead lest you realize I am passing through a painful week. Julius it is well,” James Ochieng remembered Jul.

“RIP Julius Wangore, you of Homeless Of Mombasa outfit, best known for crisscrossing the country in the spirit of charity. You hardly missed any funerals of friends or their relatives. And when my dad died in 2016, what did you do? You appeared for the burial with a tree seedling which we planted and in your own words for every person we bury let us plant a tree. Fare Thee Well wuod Ugenya,” Clifford Chianga mourned Jul.

“During my first medical mission in kenya I was as able to meet some amazing people. Julius Wangore was one of them… free will, selfless, always wanting to help, and the funny part he got his way…. he was a go getter. Julius was KIND 💕I understood him. He had a BIG HEART. He made sure we ate. To wake up to social media post and find out that you are no more is SAD. Death where is your sting??? RIP friend…. Healthcare Access Worldwide, Inc. (HAWI) has lost one good one. My heart bleeds,” Barbara Odhiambo remembered Jul.

“Julius Wangore was a good man. He always checked on me to inquire about so many things. He was a philanthropist per excellence. He loved helping those who could not help themselves. Julius, Julius, Julius, the news of your death is shocking and quite unbearable. Just last week you posted inquiring about symptoms of stroke, I didn’t know it was that serious. God knows why. God well brother. Dance with God’s angels,” Phillip Etale sent his condolences.

Julius Wangore with Homeless Kids

Uncle Julius lived his life well. He helped the needy soo much with a little he had and most importantly, made so many homeless, needy and orphans feel the importance of life. He has done so much I can’t highlight all of it. As Richard Russo would put it, Lives are like rivers: Eventually, they go where they must. Not where we want them to.”

As much as I mourn him as my Uncle, I equally celebrate his life. Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another. He has left us with a challenge to match-up our lives with his benevolence.  FARE THEE WELL UNCLE JUL.
