“My mum raised my siblings and I and sent us to school with the proceeds she got from the restaurant she ran and some other side hustle.
Today , my Mother ,who sat and watched , would have been 70! As a little girl I had watched her toil day and night in sickness and in health.
When I grew up, I promised myself that I will not just make her proud but also wipe her tears and the memory of the pain she had endured… In that moment, when she took her last breath in my arms, I knew that I had made her proud.
Today, I have a chance to do more.
So, in her memory, on this day the 28th of December 2019, I launch “UGOMBA’S KITCHEN”.
Continue to Rest In Peace Ugomba…Nwanyi Oma!” She wrote.
