Kenyan Admitted at a Medical Facility in New Jersey, Has Not Received a Single Visitor in His Two Years There

A Kenyan man has been admitted at a medical Assisted Facility in Wayne, New Jersey for the last two years after sustaining serious injuries in a car accident. Almost as equally as sad is that up until a few days ago when his case was publicized on social media, Bernard Wambui Mumo had not received a single visitor in his last two years at the Atrium Post Acute Care of Wayneview.

Bernard suffered both physical and mental injuries from the accident and as a result, he is confined to a wheelchair and has very limited memory. Other than his name and the fact that he is Kenyan/Kamba, he does not recall anything else about himself or anything.

Those who know him say Bernard used to be a photographer in the New Jersey and New York area in the 1980s and 1990s.

Anyone who may want pay Bernard a visit at the facility and cheer him up is requested to call +1 973-305-8400 or +1 973-277-8752. You can also get in touch with Jack Kilonzo through his facebook account.

Atrium Post Acute Care of Wayneview is located at 2020 Route 23 North, Wayne, New Jersey 07470.

Thankfully Bernard Wambua Mumo has been identified and family at home in Machakos has been informed . They were overjoyed as they'd lost contact for several years .
We thank God for Julius Muinde Sanga who put up the alert together with a picture he took of Mr. Mumo at the nursing home . Let's pray for the family to find a way to make arrangements to take their loved one back home .

@Mkenya Halisi, have you realized you have a serious mental illness. Hii mambo ya invest in Kenya is a symptom of mental illness. Everything you write is about invest in Kenya. Everybody has the reason that took him/her to majuu. Do not paint everybody with one brush.

Hate reading this Mkenya fisi talk about majuu like he owns Kenya. Why don't you set up an agency to return people to Kenya? You cannot impose your wishes to anyone bwana, cool your hot pants and continue milking your donkeys.

First of all how does Mkenya Fisi no whether Mr. Wambua had invested home or not? I guess he doesn't know. Anyway: I don't know how much of his Life and Time Mr. Wambua laid down for His Friends or Relatives in the Diaspora or Back in Kenya. But for me,I have personally helped lots of people in the diaspora; some of them Wakamba. And they abandoned me High and Dry. Wakamba! Wakamba!!? What Majority of Kambas know (especially in the Diaspora) is Get, Get, Get, and Forget!!! They are very selfish, self-seeking, and very good at abandoning one of their own; even those that "gave them a Soft Landing" in the Diaspora.

Don't mind what others do. Tenda wema, nenda zako. If you are helping so that we can know your name, then your help has lost cause. Just read about another gentleman in the obituaries, he is not a Kamba. Just because someone took advantage of you is not a reason to generalize. There are a lot of reasons why people find themselves in situations like this. Right now you are posting with sound mind. An accident or stroke can bring you to the same level. They say in Ukambani "Ika nesa , wiyike mwene" (doing good to others is doing good to yourself)

Thank you all for locating Benard Wambua Mumo. I took the first photo with him and cropped it to show his face so that we can all help to locate him. His family had been contacted. Thank you for positive comments but NEGATIVE stories have no business. This is after sickness. God bless.

Kenyans are just cruel when one is in need. I have experienced it first hand and since then I made sure to widen my circle of friends from other non Kenyans because it is them who even cared to call . So sorry for this man and If I lived close I would go see him.....

Please do not send this man home unless his care is guaranteed. There is no reason to move him out of a health facility to rural Kenya where there no medical facilities that can properly cater for him. The guy choose to live in USA and should be allowed to live his remaining life here. He has paid into Medicare and Social Security so let those programs provide for him now that he is in need.
Why would Kenyans need to visit him. He choose to stay away from them so his wishes should be respected.

I'm with you on this one. There is no need to return him to Kenya and especially taking him into a rural area. He will need a house that a wheelchair can move around and 24/7 365 care. It can be very overwhelming financially, labor and emotionally
