Peter Kenneth loses mother Rahab Wambui Muhuni at Aga Khan Hospital

Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth was on Sunday praised for the dedication he had made to ensure his late mother, Rahab Wambui Muhuni, accessed the best possible healthcare during her ailment.

During a memorial service for Ms Muhuni, held at Kenneth’s Loresho home, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju revealed that the former Presidential candidate had built a private Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for his mother.

Tuju, who is a close friend of Kenneth, said the ICU facility was fully stocked with dialysis machines and all other medical equipment, as well as a team of four nurses who lived with the family and took care of Ms Muhuni’s wellbeing.

The Jubilee Secretary General said he could relate with his friend’s parental care as he had also built an ICU unit for his father who was unwell for 26 years before passing on in 2015.

Another ally of the former Gatanga MP, Maina Kamanda, described Kenneth as a caring son who din not fail to take care of his mother even in the busy campaign periods.

Kenneth said his mother’s health started failing in July 2003 when she suffered a stroke.

She died last week on Thursday at the age of 84.
