Losing a loved one leaves a heartache no one can heal and that’s exactly what actress Wanjuku Mburu and her family are going through.
Wanjiku who’s popularly known as Mama Baha from TV series Machachari and her family have been living in agony after their brother George Mburu was kidnapped in Mogadishu, Somalia in January 2014. He was abducted alongside his cousin.
In 2016 on December 27 during George’s birthday. Wanjiku penned a moving letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta, which read;
‘Dear my President,
I am writing to you and this is me clutching at straws…
I was told not to write to you, others said I should follow chain of command, which I did and after a few attempts to seek an audience with the relevant people we had our 1st meeting and everyone was happy to see ‘us’.
Well that’s until we told them why we were really there and no sooner did they hear us, there were promises of immediate action…there was ” call me 1st thing in the morning….” which I did and this was the narrative…in hushed tones I was told..” I am in a meeting I’ll call you later..” this went on for a while until they no longer bothered to pick my calls…
See Mr President my brother was kidnapped and it’s now 3 years since and nothing from you or your office…after everything has been said and done, it’s been said and NOTHING done.
So this is me hoping with everything going on, your re-election, Githeri man raising to fame you will get to read this and bring my brother home…3 years, I think he has done his “time”.
His children need their father, his wife-a husband, his parents- a son and me- MY BROTHER.
I remain in your service,
Well, Mama Baha got a tattoo to honor her missing brother. She got three crosses, short form of George’s name (Jijo), a heartbeat and three powerful words; faith, hope and love inscribed at the back of her neck and left shoulder.
The actress who’s still hopeful that her brother is alive wrote,
For you my blood brother, for you I shed a tear and for you i will cross the ocean’s…..
