Things are looking up for Nathan Abuti, the 76-year-old man who cycled over 200 Kilometres to late president Daniel Moi’s burial in Kabarak, Nakuru county.

Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko, who has been touched by the man’s loyalty and adoration to the late Moi has offered to facilitate Abuti to return home.


Sonko, writing on his social media accounts asked anyone with contacts of the man to reach him so he could get to him.

“Watu wangu, nimeguswa sana na hii story 76-year-old Mzee Nathan Abuti who his obvious adoration of the Late 2nd President H.E. Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi cycled for 4 days all the way from Kakamega to Kabarak tot may least him to attend his State Funeral dressed in a KANU-flag tie,” he wrote.

” I note that as he did not have any money for a hotel room, he would sleep on verandahs and then resume safari the next day. I can’t imagine how this “self-made peace ambassador for Kenya” will make his way to his home back in Butere.

If anyone has Mzee Abuti’s contacts, please share we see how we can make the return trip easier for this gallant patriotic Kenyan. Thanks” he added.

Abuti who had cycled for four days from Butere in Kakamega was almost turned away by security officers.

However, he was later allowed to pay his last respects to the retired president.

Mzee Moi was buried on Wednesday, February 12 and a lot of people are wondering whether the old man will manage to cycle back to his hometown which might take him four days.
