I have fond memories of mum-I got my first serious outfits from her shop- my 2 graduation outfits, and my first
formal skirt suits. Good stuff I still cherish even today

I enjoyed her patience, hospitality, warmth, love, care.

I pray for comfort,peace,grace and strength for her family.

Fare thee well mum. Until we meet again

Mama Mumu you were one special mother who loved us all. Paula referred to you as the village headman because your house was like the chief's office where everyone takes their cases. Anytime we decided to visit you thinking you would be all yours was just like a dream. The minute we entered your house there would always be another person pressing the bell to be let in. Within an hour the house would be packed with visitors; some coming to greet you, others to pray with you, to seek your counselling, others still to pick all sorts of things like food, clothes, spanners, etc... not to mention the deliveries of fish, chicken, bananas from Kalonzo wa kiosk, nyama choma from Maina wa Kenyatta, followed by Angela with all sorts of vegetables and minjis for mukimo. Yaaani house no 61 was busier than a highway motel! At the gate the guards kept the barrier wide open. The question would always be "unaenda kwa Mama Mumu?" For sure we shall miss you.

Paula remember your mum's favourite slogan "Ndina Jesu ngukienda kii?" You have Jesus on your side and He will level every mountain for you and make every crooked path straight. My toastie, I will try my best to be there for you. Always be smart like mum and you will keep her smiling.

To all Mama Mumu's children, asanteni for sharing your mother with us.

Always in our hearts Mama Mumu.

We received the news of Mama Mumu’s passing with great shock and sadness, and it has been hard to come to terms with her loss. Memories down the lane when we could go to her house and bake some cookies ; she was a great prayer warrior who loved her God deeply. One could tell Mama Mumu was around with the beautiful scent of her perfume in the air. To the all those who were touched by Mama Mumu in one way of the other, may the good Lord comfort you and give you peace that surpasses all understanding as we celebrate the life of a great Matriarch. We will miss her dearly.

Cucu is not one to mourn about, she is one to celebrate because of the many lives she touched including mine, her first grandchild,Tyrese. She would always give me life lessons every time we met and I do not take it for granted. Cucu was a loving and caring person . This showed by the way she treated friends as if they were her own children. She was a role model to many and a mother to many. She will be missed and will always be with us in our hearts.

Mama Njoki as I use to call you, thank you for your friendship and love. We prayed and laughed together, encouraged each other in the faith, and enjoyed the fun of me trying out beautiful attires that you thought suited me. I didn't think you would be gone so soon. I owed you a visit that never happened. We will however catch up in glory, where I know you are. Your beautiful smile and kindness lingers on.

Thank you Charity for being such a dear dear friend. You were my patient but you gave me so many therapy sessions and encouragement. And you always prayed for me. The first day I met you my hubby was in the hospital diagnosed with Leukimea and you prayed for me.

May you dance with the angels. Thank you for blessing us with your wonderful heart and amazing wisdom.

Rest Charity. Rest.

I came to know Mama Mumu through her clothes business and we became very close to the extent that after picking my daughters from school, we would pass through her house not only to buy clothes but for a cup of tea and a smile. My family and I sends to you our deepest condolences for this loss. We all remember her for her endearing smile and generosity. May she rest in peace

Prayerful woman you 're always happy,always wishing all of us best in life your shoe will never be replaced...every time when we meet
this was the reading Psalm 133
King James Version
1Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

It’s so sad that u passed on. I remember u used to give me advice about life. You saw me grow. U were always concerned about me. U could tell if I was stressed and always told me never to worry about anything. U always told me to go to church and always pray. I noticed if u saw me Sunday morning u used to give me those “why haven’t u gone to church” eyes 😆 I always regarded u as my second mother because of your empathy.

You have been our pillar of strength, praying over us, counselling and guiding us, welcoming us to your home as your own daughters always with a beautiful smile and warm hugs and beautifully putting us on top fashion Mama!

We are heartbroken Mum 😭😭 though not lost, for you taught us to remain strong in the faith.
We know you watch over us in heaven above Mum.
We loved you Mama Mumu, till we meet again at the feet of Jesus.

This is so sad, years apart I still have fond memories of you, your kind words, your great taste in fashion and your relaxed nature. Indeed a beautiful soul has rested. Unto God we belong and to Him we return. Fare thee well...

Mathee, meeting you and walking with me  in this earthly journey was the greatest thing that happened in my life.... "mathee" as we all called you and you were to me and to many, we witnessed your sacrifice, your perseverance, your determination, your relentlessness and  single-minded pursuit of your dream. Dream that you children , your grandkids, and their kids will have a better life than you did. Your generosity of that 'kanyama choma' whenever I visited, to the stylishly dressing many of us to the fashonisters we became.
Above all your ever present summonet at every seating. I remember my first journey to the USA yu sent me with Isaiah 43 which thereafter became our greetings whenever we met.
All the while your joy and kindness emitted  to the world. I don't know what hurts worse, deleting a name from the prayer list and putting them on the dearly beloved list but the fact that death is looming, its clearly established in Scripture: "It is appointed for men to die once ...". Yes I am sad, tearful,paining and just like you reminded me when I grieved my mom and brothers ati "ona jesu niaririire Lazarus"
but like David i am the one to come  meet you I paraphrase Paula ;  We encourage ourselves that you are absent in body but present with your maker, whom you loved so much.
There is no sadness just immense gratitude for the opportunity to have witnessed such a beautiful selfless soul.
I love you Rest easy at Jesus feet..

May our God keep you safe in his arms - Sleep now Angel in your eternal rest 🕊

Paula, I'm praying for you and your beautiful family. God will comfort you. He is a God of all seasons. Our GOD is a good good FATHER. May HE visit you during this time. May mom rest peacefully at the feet of JESUS. Amen!!

Cucu had an amazing sense of humor and would always put a smile on my face. Before she got covid-19 she would come and visit us and bring us lots of banana’s, maize, yogurt and potatoes. She was caring and fearless she never was afraid of any obstacle that was through to her. She always made me happy and confident of myself. When we was not able to visit, she would always call me and ask what we needed. I remember it was a hard time for me I was about to do a major exam she came to visit as and she calmed me down and she prayed for me. I will miss you so much cucu and we love you!

The Mumu Family,
Nairobi, Kenya.

Dear Cousins, your dear spouses, and loving children.


The news of Auntie's passing was difficult to receive and accept. Our family ties go back many decades back as Auntie with my late Mum brought us up as disciplined cousins.

Today, I am reminded of Exodus Chapter 15: 22-25

22 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.[f]) 24 So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?” 25 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became fit to drink.

The passing of Auntie and the inability to congregate, celebrate her and comfort each other is a very bitter experience. We are passing through a very bitter time. Auntie was dearly loved and a wonderful person. I can only imagine what her gracious family must be experiencing. It must be so difficult especially as we remember our Uncle (Baba Mumu) and Mumu who have gone ahead of us. May the Lord God Almighty guide us to find the piece of wood to throw in this water that it may become palatable.

May we cherish the wonderful memories of laughter, warm hugs, and a cheerful smile to keep us going. May we strive to be as unassuming and of a cheerful disposition as Auntie was.

I am very sad. Auntie, nenda salama. Umevipigana vita vilvyo vizuri, mwendo umeumaliza, imani umeilinda (2 Timonthy 4:7). Nachoweza kusema: lala salam Mama Mumu, lala salama shujaa. Pumzika kwa amani Mama. Bwana alitoa, Bwana ametwaa, jina lake lihimidiwe milele na milele, Amina.

Mama Mùmù as we fondly called you. I know you as a strong Woman of faith, you loved The Lord. I remember our fellowship at Nairobi Pentecostal Church, your beautiful taste for clothes that made me dash to your shop near Basilica and many visits at home where you would pray for us to get life partners and indeed God honoured your prayers. You were a pleasant lady, so warm and hospitable. We will dearly miss you Mom. Now you are with your Creator. We celebrate your life.

Charity Mwangi - Mama Wangari- an amazing woman of God. Just a month ago, she called me to ask how I was, how my hubby was and our sons. And as always she said, “please find time and come home”. I promised to find time- sad to learn that I am late for the appointment. My prayers with her children and entire family. May You find comfort in the God Charity loved and worshipped.
It is well. Shalom

Charity W Mwangi, fondly called by all of us as Mama Mumu whose kindness was beyond boundaries.
We feel lost for words because of leaving us although we know it's only a matter of time and we all gather together and this time no more separation. Your kindness and generosity to all and especially to the Servants of GOD was beyond measure. And certainly the LORD shall reward you accordingly. It is hard to admit that you are no more but as Paul put it, "that to live is gain and to die is even much better because you have gone to be with the King of kings " ,where there is no more suffering and pain. Just recently you and us were to go to Meru for a Memorial service of Faith Njagi your College Lecturer and our common friend but you had a serious cold which turned out to be 😭😭😭😭😭 and you could not join us, unknown to us that you would be with her in paradise. Rest In Peace Till We meet again.Bishop Margaret and Family.🙏❣️🎶
