In a poignant eulogy, Mama Charlie expressed her emotions through a letter to her beloved son, reminiscing about the good and challenging times they shared:


Dear Charlie,

I often say that God’s decisions are above ours, but it’s still hard to believe that He has taken you away from me, ‘Baba.’ I am so proud to have watched you grow into a great, lively, lovable man.

I am grateful for all the memories—being my long-time barber, random calls when you were at work, ‘Mum, are you okay?’ ‘Mum, what do you want me to buy for you?’ I will dearly miss your spicy chickens that you made for me.

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you, Charlie.

Charlie, rest well. I love you so much, and you will always be in my heart.

Bye-bye, Baba!!!

From your loving mum, Yunia.”

Actor Charles Ouda passed away on the night of February 3, 2024, at the age of 38. On February 14, 2024, a night vigil was held at the Kenya National Theatre in honor of the late Charles Ouda.
