Justice MUCHELULE is bereaved. The death of Mama Dina has left the entire Luhya nation in shock since she has been in good health and active.
If there ever has lived a lady of valor and value in Kisa of Khwisero is mama Dina.
She welcomed the first missionaries from Babptist church and CMS in her home at Emalindi, where catholics had already established a big mission. She stood by her Husband, the late MUCHELULE during those times of hard work when he was training to be the first clinical officer in the region.
They partnered with Baptist Church Enanga parish and it is here they set up a quality high class clinic in the early 70s. Many of us in Eshibinga, Emuhaya, Emalindi etc who were born those years are alive today curtersy of Dr. And Mama MUCHELULE, because of their injections and guidance on nutritional skills to our unschooled parents. Hospitalised Circumcision via a simple surgery in Kisa was introduced by MUCHELULE.
Personally, I was circumcised at the MUCHELULE clinic.
Mama did not just stop there. She raised some of the most wonderful and important people in Kenya today. Justice MUCHELULE the judge at the court of appeal was nurtured by mama Dina. She named him Otsula. Otsula in my native means someone who likes to cry. She made him cry through Mwihila high to Kakamega high to law school and to what he is today. The siblings who are also in medical and marketing fields include Edward MUCHELULE and my university year mate Sam MUCHELULE.
The life celebration of Mama Dina will be next weekend at Emalindi. The entire nation led by H. E. Musalia Mudavadi will be expected at the celebration.
REST IN PEACE MAMA JUSTICE.
