What you need to know:

  • Njenga Mwenda Kariuki leaves behind 13 children, numerous grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
  • His burial is scheduled for February 17 at the Lang’ata cemetery.

Imara Daima stage, Nairobi. Friday 12.22pm. The first boda-boda rider I approach has no clue about the location of the home of Mr Njenga Mwenda Kariuki, the man after whom Mukuru kwa Njenga slum is named. The second rider knows. He wants Sh150 and he will take me straight to the gate. Deal.
