It is 24 years since ex-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko lost his mother, Saumu Mukami Kaimathari Mbuvi.
To mark her death anniversary, Sonko shared his pain of losing a mother.
In an emotional post on his social media, Mike Sonko wrote,
"In loving memory of my lovely mum Saumu Mukami Kaimathari Mbuvi, It is so painful to lose a mother, it's exactly 24years since you went to be with God! I thank God for the time he gave us your children to know and love you.
Your life made me all that I am and your death made me more sensitive to other people's pain and suffering. Secret tears still flow when we think of you. Living without you is almost impossible. In life we loved you, in death we still do.
We thank God for letting us be part of your life. We know you are still with us, watching over us. Your departure changed our lives completely and made us love you even more.
Continue resting in peace mum till we meet again.May God grant peace to all who are mourning the loss of their loved ones today. Mum continue resting in peace."
Other than Sonko, his wife Primrose Mbuvi and daughter Saumu Mbuvi also mourned the family matriarch on her 24th anniversary.
