They lost their mother after she succumbed to cancer in 2013.
Baha, real name Tyler Kamau Mbaya, revealed in previous interviews that despite his successful rise to the top of the Kenyan movie industry, his life has been less than glamorous with him and his brother having to take on the financial burden of his family after their parents’ death.
Their mother, Beth Nyambura Mbaya was also an actress on Citizen TV’s mother in law series. Fans of the show would know her as Wanade.
On England’s Mother’s Day, which was on March 11, Mungai Mbaya took to his social media and penned down an emotional message to the brothers’ late mother.
“Been 5 years already since we lost this gem of a woman @tyler_mbaya. It didn't really hit me how long it’s been until I realised this is one of the only two decent pictures I have of her. So I apologise if y'all have seen this picture too much. And for bringing your beautiful Sunday to a such a low note.
I'm older now and I understand that a lot of stuff that happens in our life has a reason. We may never know why, so the best we can do is trust that it was and still is for the best.
How I wish you could see us now. Well you probably are. And I know there's a smile on your face.
We love you so much mom! Happy mother's day...#SinemaniKazi." read his post.
Baha reiterated his brother’s words revealing that he missed her too.
