On Wedneday, Sean also thanked Kenyans for the support during the tough period when he, his family and the entire nation were mourning  Mwai Kibaki's death.

In a tweet, Sean Andrew wrote,

"I'm amazed by all the support from you all. From calls, texts, dms... even when we meet. It is Your positivity that is getting us through this and I humbly appreciate you with all my heart"

He added 'Truly Thanks' with the hashtags Mwai Kibaki and Legacy Lives on.

After the announcement of Kibaki's death, Sean removed all his social media profiles and replaced them with black. Black often symbolizes death or mourning is still a safe choice for funerals.

On Saturday, Sean Andrew, left tongues wagging with his own unique way of paying tribute to his departed granddad.

When his grandpa was being laid to rest at his Othaya home, Sean was among the Kibaki family that were present at the graveside. 

He took a spade and poured some soil inside the grave. 

Shortly after, Sean handed over the spade and went on to take off a ring from his last finger. He then threw the ring inside the grave and walked away. 

The sign from Sean Andrew has stood out as a unique way of paying tribute to his late grandfather.
