President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence and comfort to the family, relatives and friends of the late Martha Njeri Ng’ang’a who passed on last Friday while undergoing treatment at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi.

Mama Martha Njeri, 97, was a mother to Dr. Wilfred Kiboro, the chairman of Nation Media Group.

In his message, the President eulogized the late Mama Njeri as a charitable matriarch who espoused family values and always worked hard to uplift the wellbeing of the less privileged in society.

“Mama Njeri Ng’anga was a gracious and generous lady. She will forever be remembered for using her modest earnings from tea farming to educate children from disadvantaged backgrounds. She went further to mentor beneficiaries of her benevolence to become productive citizens,” the President noted.

President Kenyatta prayed to God to give the family comfort and fortitude at this difficult moment of mourning.
