I’m not at peace seeing him in this condition ,the area leaders(mzee wa mtaa ) are not willing to help kindly I’m calling for support to help him trace his people.

My Land is Kenya, My story begins in Limuru I and urge us all to share this post widely to help locate people affiliated to him. As i keep saying Humanity always wins, it starts by you sharing.
A while back my old man alinipeleka kuona shamba fulani huko interior alinunua kitambo kabla nizaliwe. Place remote sana. The opposite shamba ilikuwa na one house na mzee ndani akipika ugali na kuni. We came to learn from the locals that the old man lives alone and they ocassionally send someone to check on him na kumpea chakula. He has more than 10 kids who are nowhere to be seen. Bibi yake alienda pamoja na watoto kitambo when the kids grew up, wakawacha mzee.
My point is, watoto sio insurance. Your kids can abandon you, just like your wife and relatives. But your property will be by your side until you die. A man’s best insurance is his properties, not someone with a heart pumping blood in his chest.
And lets behave ourselves guys. Kuna stunts zingine sisi hu weka kwa hi platform that shouldnt be witnessed by your family members at all. Lets respect ourselves and repect our families even more.
Juu kila mahali nimeona Mzee alikuwa neglected ni Mzee wasnt wise in his dealings when he was younger so the kids grew up resenting the old man then the wife got fed up and pulled a dissapearing act or maybe even passed.
Noma usione Mzee amelala hapo chini…labda ana majuto and hes got some serious apologies to make.
Family is family. Not an individual. Kuna wale watameza kuna wale watakataa ukweli saying it was avoidable…hutapenda.
JUST STEER CLEAR OF THE SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON…red pill blue pill green pill rainbow colored pill…it aint worth it.
Old age suffering aint fun…angalia hio picha vizuri.
There is always a story behind it. Either mzee alikuwa the violent type, anakuja kama amelewa na kuvuruga homestead or he was the neglecting type with woman’s all over and neglecting his family as @Lonely Lover has pointed out, the resentment originates from something the old man did in his prime and the kids came to hate him for it.
That happens. But its way easier to mobilise the kids against the dad if the dad is openly being an asshole…sasa mzae akipotea na tea bonus anawacha the family starving no clothes no school fees and the the mzee is the talk of the town vile anachota mapoko huko nje akirudi nyumbani mlevi bila shillingi.
Halafu the worst bit itakuja when the kids watajionea mama na baba wakihave a showdown maybe the mums crying akikemea mzee juu ya umalaya ulevi na ku aibisha familia…boss hapo umeblunder kabisa…the kids witnessing how their caring hardworking mum is trying so hard but mzee ndio the achilles heel.
The kids will internalise this and grow up with some serious rage.
ITS NOT THE MOTHER WHO MOBILISED THE KIDS…NI MNANAUME MWENYEWE.
They will deal with the man sacamphoniously.
It all starts with the man. Huyo Mzee MAY not be innocent.
