Mombasa Woman Who Cooked Stones For Kids Embarrasses Joho.

A woman from Mombasa county cooked stones.

A story of a 36 years old woman from Mombasa county, Kisauni constituency Mlango Saba, who decided to cook stones for her kids, has surprised many Kenyans.

The lady by the name Penninah Kitsao while speaking to NTV Kenya stated that she decided to cook stone to confuse her 8 kids who were crying out of hunger. She cooked the stones to make her kids think that, their mum is cooking real meal and in process they may sleep.

According to a story covered by NTV, the Penninah Kitsao was widowed in June 2019 after her husband was attacked and killed by a criminal gang. By then she was two months pregnant with the last born who does not understand why their mother is not giving them food.

Penninah has been depending on small daily jobs like washing cloths. But following the current situation in the world, it is becoming difficult for her to get the job.

The first person to notice the situation was her neighbor who visited them after listen the kids crying, only to find stones boiling in a pan. The neighbor went ahead to post her story on internet, calling on the well wishers to help her.

Where is the food donations?

Many Kenyans who have so far reacted to this story, have questioned how such a thing can happen in Mombasa county, where their governor has been trending for being set to feed his people during this hard times.

Some residence of Mombasa county have so far received the food donation from the county government while some are complaining that the process was not fair. This is because it is alleged that many vulnerable residence have missed while better off household getting the food donations.

Few days ago, some residence of Mombasa county had complain that some better off places like Mkomani ward was given first priority while places like Likoni , Kisauni, Mshomoroni and Kisauni where most vulnerable people live, marked towards the last.

Many Kenyans believe that Mombasa governor did it wrong. He should have given vulnerable people like Penninah Kitsao first priority after doing a serious research to identify them.

Governor Ali Hassan Joho asked to be careful to avoid such blunders to spoil his admired leadership skills.

    Nice work but always proof read severally. See the following spelling mistakes
    1. crying, only to fight stones boiling in a pan,
    SP MISTAKE: fight instead of find.
    2. Mshomoroni and Kisauni whwre most vulnerable people live,
    SP MISTAKE: whwre instead of where.

    Joho is just but a crook in the Mombasa county leadership leading by segmenting the county and delivering services to areas where only light skinned people associate of Swahili live.
    He is a self centered leader talking vocally but very eronius and myopic.

    Blaming Governor Joho is wrong, the ones to be nlamed are the leaders on the ground the Nyumba kumi leader for that area, sub chief, chief and MCA plus the mp. Joho cant be in every corner of the county and if he was informed am sure he could have helped the mother and children just like he helped the the onee who was using an improvised face mask made of a plastic bottle.

    It’s really sad that this woman did that just because of poverty despite that she loves her children too much she had to give them an empty hope that there will be food soon while she knew that there was nothing. It’s really painful to the many families who are facing the same situation in Kenya while we have a government in position. I think we Kenyans we haven’t received what we expected from the jubilee government and the county government as we thought. 70 percent of Kenyans we regret for electing this government into leadership.
    The leaders in the said government may be doing theor work and doing what they are suppose to do but while we come to the people that they are entrusting the leadership to they fail them.
    E. G His excellency Governor Joho may have done all that it needs to trace the needy people in his county and help them to his level best but due to corrupt officers in his government it fails since they don’t do what he expects them to do. They don’t give the food or accord help to the people that they ought to but they give to the rich and family members.
    How I wish is that one day before the second coming of Christ corruption in Kenya will be something of past and that we will all live as brothers and sisters and the gap between the poor and the rich will be something of the past.
    Governor Jojo I urge you to call me and help you in identifying the needy and the poor person in your county I have that great heart of doing the right and justice to the poor and the needy families. I have been brought up in a orphanage and I have been taught to do just to the poor Kenyans.
    I lead the IDP camp in Rift valley after the 2007 chaos where I was entrusted millions of money by the well wishers and the Ngo and the African inland Missionaries in Kenya. I accounted for every penny and that how I become famous in Kenya.
    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Yours Kenneth mungai Kamau
