Ken Saro-Wiwa’s Son Died of Coronavirus in London

Ken Saro-Wiwa’s Son Died of Coronavirus in London (Updated: 2 years ago)


Menegian, one of the children of late Ogoni environmental activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa, has died of Coronavirus in a hospital in the United Kingdom.

His death was announced on Facebook by his sister, Noo, this afternoon. She wrote;

“We said goodbye to my brother, Gian, on Monday. He had Covid-19 combined with underlying health conditions. Gian was the smartest and most talented out of all of us: a champion sprinter at school, a poet, an artist, budding engineer, a self-taught guitarist and pianist. But mental health issues limited his life from age 16 onwards.

“I took this photo of him a few months ago before he was hospitalised. We were singing Hysteria by Def Leppard, a song we both love. Although the side-effects of medication altered his athletic physique, this photo still captures Gian’s essence: a kind and beautiful soul, always wanting the best for his family, always praying for our future success while being eternally optimistic about his own. And, of course, always loving his music. He leaves a wonderful son, Louis.
(Menegian Saro-Wiwa, 1970-2020)”

He was 50 years old. May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
