Mama Rosebella died while undergoing treatment in Pennsylvania, US where she had been admitted for months.
She will be remembered for being uncompromising family matriarch who valued the virtues of hard work and discipline that saw the late Mudamba’s family thriving to greater heights.
Being a leader in the society, she fought for equality and exhibited a passionate outstanding character of serving humanity and raising vulnerable and underprivileged families in the society.
Prominent leaders in Vihiga County led by Sabatia MP Hon Alfred Agoi have expressed sympathy and consoles with the family of the former short-term vice president Musalia Mudavadi.
