Painting - Thick Oil On Canvas
Once in a while I dedicate a Canvas to a famous character. Today my oil canvas is dedicated to Field Marshall Mwariama. The Name Mwariama means “One who speaks Truth”. It could also mean other things.
Mwariama was a Kenyan freedom fighter who served together with the likes of Field Marshall Dedan Kimathi and Field Marshall Muthoni Kirima. I am preparing a canvas for Muthoni in the near future.
M'Kiribua M'Muchiri, or Mbaringu, or Muthigari Mugathe, or Nkumbuku, or Field Marshall Mwariama was born in 1928 at Muthara in Tigania division of Meru District in Kenya. He was a great human being in the history of modern Kenya. For those who admire the heroes of Africa, this is one other person you can celebrate with me.
Musa Mwariama, another Great Kenyan. It is said that Field Marshal Mwariama died in 1989 from snake poison that he had accidentally swallowed while trying to save a friend from a snake bite. A man of the people, both in life and in death! RIP Forever, Mwariama.
