Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has offered to provide transportation and welfare up keep for 76 year old man, Mzee Nathan Ambuti who cycled 223 kilometres in 4 days from Butere ,Kakamega county to Mzee Moi residence in Kabarak,Nakuru County only to be turned away.
However after public outcry Mzee Nathan Ambuti was allowed access to the late Mzee Moi residence and got to sign his condolences to the late former retired President Daniel Arap Moi.
Mike Sonko wrote as seen by Newszaleo.co.ke that” Watu wangu, nimeguzwa sana na hii story 76-year-old Mzee Nathan Ambuti who his obvious adoration of the Late 2nd President H.E. Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi cycled for 4 days all the way from Kakamega to Kabarak to attend his State Funeral dressed in a KANU-flag tie.
I note that as he did not have any money for a hotel room, he would sleep on verandahs and then resume safari the next day. I can’t imagine how this “self-made peace ambassador for Kenya” will make his way to his home back in Butere.
If anyone has Mzee Ambuti’s contacts, please share we see how we can make the return trip easier for this gallant patriotic Kenyan. Thanks.
