Sonko’s wife Primrose Mbuvi is set to receive the Mother’s Honor Award in the humanitarian services category during the International Mothers’ Day on May 12.
The awards, organized by True Story Kenya in conjunction with other partners, seek to recognize and reward mothers who play a vital role in the society.
Primrose has been working with street families, providing sanitary towels to needy families especially in slum areas and inmates, helping to uplift their lives through socioeconomic interventions.
She has reached out to over 200 street urchins and inmates, transforming their lives for the better.
The fifth edition of the Mothers’ Honors Award ceremony will take place at the Light International Academy’s auditorium from 2-6pm on Sunday.
The awards play a vital role in promoting and encouraging mothers to help impact the society in different ways.
There are 11 categories in which impactful mothers will be recognized.
These include humanitarian services, women empowerment, education, media, enforcement of law and order, leadership, informal sector upgrading, sports, tourism and travel, special needs education and entertainment.
Governor Mike Sonko has also been recognized as the pillar behind his wife’s work.
He will be the guest of honor at the awards ceremony on Sunday.
