That Dr. Ken Ouko of UoN has succumbed to COVID-19 this morning is a chilling reminder that COVID kills. It has plucked one of the very finest. Ken was my lecturer & great friend. Exceptionally brilliant with a great sense of humour. Covid has reaped where it did not sow. Go well pic.twitter.com/L4gjhpZ26Y
