The Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader H.E. Musalia Mudavadi has lost at his mother, Hannah Atsianzale.
In a tweet, the former Vice President said “our family matriarch” passed on at 5 am while at the Nairobi Hospital.
“On behalf of the entire Mudavadi family, I wish to announce that our family Matriarch, Mama Hannah Atsianzale Mudavadi, has gone to be with the Lord. She rested at 5.00am today at the Nairobi Hospital. She was 92 years old,” he said.
He added, “As a family, we are devastated by this loss but are bearing it with grace. Please remember us in your prayers. The Lord gives and the Lord takes. May our dear Mum’s soul RIP.”
For H.E. this loss is painful. He loved his mom passionately. He would often refer to himself as Omwana wa Hannah.
Hannah has passed on at a time when Musalia is at his prime in politics. Musalia ameiva. His moves, his words and actions show a politician who is mature and ready to take over the leadership of Kenya.
Unfortunately, mama Hannah will not witness this anymore.
REST IN PEACE MAMA HANNAH
