76 Year Old Man Cycles For 3 Days To Attend Moi’s Funeral :SONKO Offers Help
The Nairobi city County Mike Sonko has come out to offer a helping hand to the old mzee who cycled for three days to attend Moi's burial. The 76 year old cycled from Kakamega County to Nakuru County to pay his last respects to mzee Moi. Sonko taking to his social media said he had been moved by the story of the old man and would be glad to aid him. He asked people to volunteer any information leading to the old man as he would make his trip back home less tiring.
He added that the resilience and determination shown by the old man was something to hail about, journeying for mines with harsh conditions to attend Moi's burial. "I have been impressed by the story of 76-year-old Mzee Nathan Ambuti whose obvious adoration of the late 2nd President H.E. Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, cycled for four 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," he posted..
"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," he concluded. Mzee Nathan caught the attention many inthe Media when he arrived with his pimped bicycle bearing national flags of different countries and messages parched in it.
He was barred from accessing the residence of Moi at Kabarak on 11th February by security personnel manning the home. He was directed to go during the burial day. He was later allowed access when members of Moi's family intervened and had the privilege to pen his signature in the condolence book at Moi's home. The old man said that finances would not allow him to use an easier means of transport and so he opted for his bicycle.
