The Kenya Society

This evening, Queen Elizabeth II gave a special broadcast on the Coronavirus pandemic. She thanked the NHS front line staff and carers, talked about the pride and resilience of the British people, and appreciated those following the guidelines to stay at home. Despite the disruption to society, the tone was hopeful, saying, 'we will meet again'.

The Kenya Society

Dear Members and Friends of the Society,

It was with great personal sadness and shock that I heard that Girish Raval had died yesterday, 27th March 2020. He was a dear friend and colleague in the Kenya Society over many years – indeed he attended the very first meeting when our Society was inaugurated on Jamhuri Day 1989. He went on to become a long-time member of the Committee and made a generous contribution to our Society, always supportive of our Society and what it hoped to achieve. Above all he loved Kenya and delighted in telling many stories of his own personal and business relations with our country. He was fiercely proud, too, of the Asian contribution to Kenya during the struggle for Independence and in the years that followed as Kenya’s reputation grew and its economy expanded. Outside the Society, Girish served as Treasurer and was Past President of the prestigious Rotarians.

Last year Girish stood down from the Committee with grace and humour – and typically pledged his continuous support for the Society and to me personally. In turn, he agreed to accept the position of Vice-Patron – awarded to an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to the Society. We will surely miss him, his advice and wise counsel.

To his wife Meena and family – our sympathy and condolences on their loss. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
