President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday evening, January 6, paid a visit to the family of ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi at their Karen home, Nairobi County, following the loss of their mother Hannah Atsianzale.
While addressing mourners, a girl waving at the President caught his attention, prompting Uhuru to approach her.
The two exchanged pleasantries as those in the crowd looked at them in admiration.
"Hi mommy (sic). How are you doing? Are you wearing your mask when you go to school or are you forgetting?" the president asked as the little girl responded muffled up in her mask.
The head of state expressed his gratitude to those who had paid the Mudavadi family a visit and offered their support, saying that at such trying times is when people realise their true friends.
In addition, he jotted down on the condolence book and had a chat with Mudavadi before taking a stroll around the compound.
The late Mama Hannah died aged 92 years at the Nairobi Hospital on December 28, 2020.
The president mourned her as a cornerstone of the Mudavadi family, a wise woman of few words on whose broad shoulders many people were raised to become great Kenyans.
“Mrs Mudavadi was a gracious and loving mother, a true matriarch who loved and took care of all people, especially those in need, without any reservation,” President Kenyatta said in his message to Mudavadi's family.
The president visited the family a day after his deputy William Ruto also went to pay his respects.
Ruto described Mama Hannah as a devoutly religious, respected and responsible woman who raised upright, hardworking and diligent children.
"Hannah Atsianzale was a God-fearing, humble and responsible woman who raised diligent children. She was focussed and an enthusiastic servant of the community who has left behind a rich legacy. Our commiserations to the Mudavadi family and their loved ones."Deputy President William Ruto writing a condolence message on Tuesday 5 January 2021.
