Mike Sonko Looking For The 76 Year Old Man Who Cycled From Butere To Kabarak

After hitting the headlines, Mzee Nathan Ambuti who cycled from Butere kakamega to attend the late president Moi’s funeral, is now being sought after by the Nairobi governor Mike Sonko.

Mzee Nathan Ambuti had cycled for over 200 km spending four days on the way to get to Nakuru for the funeral of Mzee Moi. It was from this act of self sacrifice that caught the attention of Mike Sonko to look for him and offer a helping hand. Sonko wrote:

“Watu wangu, nimeguzwa sana na hii story 76-year-old Mzee Nathan Ambuti who his obvious adoration of the Late 2nd President H.E. Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi cycled for 4 days all the way from Kakamega to Kabarak to attend his State Funeral dressed in a KANU-flag tie.” Mike Sonko Tweeted

He went ahead and tweeted;

‘I note that as he did not have any money for a hotel room, he would sleep on verandahs and then resume safari the next day. I can’t imagine how this “self-made peace ambassador for Kenya” will make his way to his home back in Butere.’ Read Mike Sonko’s tweet.

He asked anyone with Mr. Ambuti’s contacto so that he could help facilitate for his return back home to Butere.

“If anyone has Mzee Ambuti’s contacts, please share we see how we can make the return trip easier for this gallant patriotic Kenyan. Thanks” He wrote.
