Saumu Mbuvi, the eldest child of former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko touched her followers hearts when she left a message on her Instagram stories of a young girl she had rescued off the streets.

In a question and answer session she held on December 20, 2022, Saumu was responding to a question asked directly to her by the young girl in question who asked, “As a former street kid, you have really touched and motivated (me). How did you tolerate my character?”

“When I met you, I just didn’t see a girl on the street, I saw a little sister, a friend, a brilliant young lady with a beautiful heart of sharing that needs my help and I promised to stand by you and walk with you together in this journey; and thank you for seeing all the little sacrifices I made because with that you made me proud and decided to change. Don’t ever give up on yourself again, you are going places and I’m never leaving your side…” Saumu responded to the anonymous young girl.

Of late, Saumu has been dedicating herself to a life of service for Kenya’s underprivileged. She brands herself as a philanthropist and human rights activist; and has been organizing food drives to feed the poor in various locations in Kenya. She also told another follower in the Q&A session that she is a light worker who is kind, happy, loving and a nurturing soul who always leaves the brightest light in the darkest of places in people’s lives.

She also said she aims at leaving the world better than she found it.

She founded the Pamoja Twaweza Initiative with which she has been visiting the less fortunate, children’s’ homes and her most recent visit was on December 13, 2022, where she and her team spent time , fed and danced with kids at a local home.

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others,” Saumu wrote in part as she uploaded photos of the visit on her Instagram account.
