Wanjiku Mburu, the former Machachari actress popularly known as Mama Baha, isn’t afraid to break boundaries as evidenced by the photos she shares on her Instagram page. I will give you a hint, body positivity is a theme of her photos.
The actress is set to do something bolder this month with news that she will stage a walk to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s office on the 28th of January.
The reason for her walk to the president’s office from Nairobi West is to try and attract the president’s attention whom she had visited earlier, to ask for help to bring back her brother who was kidnapped in 2013.
She wrote the information on her Instagram page. The caption is below,
“On 28th of January is my birthday and on this Day I walk for my brother Georgie. Please walk with me, together we will walk far. #bringgeorgehome #bringbackgeorgy #blood #brother #abduction #mogadishu”
The issue has been percolating in Mama Baha’s heart as a few weeks ago. Mama Baha shared a video highlighting the government’s futile attempt to bring back her brother who is being held hostage in Mogadishu for the past 6 years.
“In hushed tones I was told, I’m 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 there’s nothing from you or your office. After everything has been said, it’s been said but nothing is done” read part of the letter to the President which she wrote on 12th August 2017.
