A journey to eternity. Rest on Faithful Servant “Shu Fai”

Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little ; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your Master. (Matthew 25:23).

Before his passing onto Glory in the early hours of June 24th 2022, Faay Hyacenth popularly called Shu Fai, was one of the longest serving and humble employee at St. Veronica Medical Centre where he served as the university’s accountant for over 20 years. The news of his death is still a nightmare to staff as they are still to accept that indeed a hero has fallen and rolled into the grave where they shall see him no more.
With heavy hearts, it is a reality that it is a big fall and a great loss by the Institution and what is left is to pray continously for his gentle soul to rest in Peace.

Shu Fai was lastly spotted publicly at the celebration of this year’s labour day – 1st of May which took place at the ceremonial grounds of Biaka University. During this event, he led the “Njang” dance group and the beautiful memory of how he sang, danced and played the drums is still very fresh.
Shu Fai after this event, took his annual leave to rest but he has gone to rest and will return no more.
Indeed we shall forever remember his great works. Journey well Shu Fai. Adieu!
