Love of a mother: Mugiithi artiste Kareh B pays a glowing tribute to son

Mary Wangari Gioche (Kareh B) and Morris Mwadulo, parents of the late Joe alias Joseph Mwadulo, have paid tribute to their late son, describing him as a charming and talented child.

Speaking during the memorial service at the Nairobi Chapel, Karen, Mwandulo, fondly remembered his son as a gifted person.

“One thing I will remember about Joe is that he was very active in sports. He loved basketball like I do and I’d just say maybe it’s in the blood. I will also remember Joe because he really loved to challenge my English,” he said.

“He used to get some very difficult vocabulary. As a writer, I would say he had a lot in him that I feel has been taken away. I know you all loved Joe and it’s not easy for many of you here and for me but I have to believe and trust in the Lord and move on.”

Mugiithi artiste, Kareh B in her tribute said she had chosen to celebrate her son rather than mourn him.

“I want to reiterate that my son was all about making everyone happy. If he found you sad, by the time he left you, you were happy. He challenged me in so many ways. He was a footballer, which I can’t play,” she said.

Kareh B said she gave birth to her son when she was very young.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I felt like I was not ready and I was worried. I was so young, but I decided to keep you. When I held you, I knew I had made the right decision,” she said.

“You are athletic, charming, kind, talented and so bright. You had promised me that you wanted to be a pilot and you wanted to fly me to a great destination. Tears cannot wash away the pain, but I have chosen to celebrate you, not mourn you,” Kareh B added in her moving tribute.

The 17-year-old died in a devastating bus crash.

Joseph was among students travelling from Chavakali High School to Nairobi in an Easy Coach bus.

He died on the spot after their bus crashed in Mamboleo-Kisumu at around 10 pm on April 1, 2024.

Joe will be buried on April 12, 2024, in Karwagi Village, Embu County.
