Ma Ikegbunam goes home at 91



REMAINS of the late Ma Nkwodunma Catherine Ikegbunam, (nee Mmuo) has been laid to rest in her family compound at Umunono – Umuanum Nibo, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

  The burial service had both the religious, social groups, friends, sympathisers, her paternal relations, who came to commiserate with the family on their mothers death.

  Commenting on the life and times of the deceased, the representative  of the Vicar of  St, Michael and All Angels Anglican Church, Nibo, Venerable David Obiagboso, described her as a committed Christian who lived a life for many.

  He enjoined  Christians to be mindful of their lifestyles, so that their past would not be a torment to the living, because life is not owned by any man other than God.”I am thanking this family on the way they stood by their mother for such  long years of 91.”

  He cited one of the books written by Julius Nyerere, of Tanzania, where he acknowledged the uniqueness of the African culture, in terms of relationships from the maternal and paternal sides  to second d and third generation, and  supported it with a Bible verse in  Mathew 5v7, that says,” blessed are those that are kind in heart, for they will be shown mercy”.

  First son of the deceased, Okechukwu  Ikegbunam, went down memory lane, saying that his mother was born into a family that  practiced paganism  but was given a good training and  upon her marriage, she embraced Christianity that remolded her life the more. ”I am not praising her but she was exceptional, she didn’t segregate. She is a mother with a golden heart and  she lived a very good life”.
