In March 2022, President Uhuru Kenyatta also condoled with the family of State House Comptroller, Kinuthia Mbugua, following the death of his mother Mama Loice Njeri Mbugua.

Mama Loice who was 100 years old passed away on March 17, 2022 while undergoing treatment at a Nairobi hospital.

In his message of comfort to the family, President Kenyatta described Mama Loice Njeri as a hard-working and progressive community leader who cherished education as the key to success.

The Head of State also noted that Mama Loice was a strong advocate of family values and raised a distinguished family, which has continued to serve the nation with diligence in various sectors.

“Despite growing up during the colonial era, Mama Loice Njeri Mbugua strove to ensure her children received quality education with the understanding that knowledge was the fountain of life,” President Kenyatta eulogised.

The president said Mama Loice also valued women empowerment and promoted agribusiness as a way of boosting women’s income in her community.
