  2. Count vazir Ismail ramji ganji :

    My family and I were deeply saddened by the news of Mrs. Kanji’s passing. We wish to offer our most deepest condolences to you and your family. May Allah grant her soul peace.
    In this moment of grief I wish to offer you a wonderful story of Mrs. Kanji from back in the 20’s. She was an outstanding woman who saved many lives in the deep jungle. One dreadful night the fearless Mrs Kanji heard that the infamous maumau had taken an entire village into the dark jungle. She immediately mounted her horse and gathered her noble guards Askaris and went off into the night. She returned back a few hours later with all the villagers in tow. They named her the chief of their village and gave her all their land. This tract of land is now where half of Nairobi sits. She was a true heroine and she still owns all that land.
    Mama simba is what they call her to this day.
