Governor Wangamati Visits  Namukuru, A ‘Mama Pima’ Since 1966, At Her Home In Kamukuywa



Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati visited Mama Namukuru Wanjeche was born disabled and  declared outcast because of her status.


The Mother of 6 has been involved in the making and sale of illegal liquor since 1966.


Wanjeche together with her children, they stay in a flat roof shanty of 14 iron sheets on Kamukuywa Market on a small plot bought by her elder daughter who is also a Mama Pima



Namukuru and her family will sleep knowing they have a roof over their heads as Governor initiated the building of a new 32 iron sheet house.


To ease Namukuru’s mobility and afford her a level of dignity, Wangamati  delivered a wheelchair to her.


Wangamati also gave Sh 20, 000 to Namukuru’s eldest daughter as seed capital to venture into legitimate income generating business.


For the family to keep going, Governor gave Namukuru Ksh10, 000 for upkeep.


Namukuru is only one among tens of disadvantaged people who have hosted the Governor in the recent days. Everyday, Governor Wycliffe Wangamati gets to meet families like Namukuru’s, citizens beaten down by life in more ways than one.


While he may never be able to touch every individual case brought to his attention, Governor will, as often as he can, change the lives of those he can, by affording them homes, offering them fishing lines, but most importantly, renewing their hope in God and humanity.
