Tuesday, March 12, 2013 – She is rarely seen in the public limelight but the humble soft spoken Kenyan first lady Margaret Wanjiru Kenyatta is not new to the cameras.

Born to former Director Of State Controlled Kenya Railways Corporation Njuguna Gakuo, Margaret went to the prestigious St. Andrews School in Molo, she met her husband Uhuru Kenyatta, who is her best friend in Mombasa and later on tied the knot at Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi in 1989.

According to her friends, she is a noble and simple woman who loves keeping her life normal despite the fact that she is married to the son of the first President of Kenya who is now the President. On a normal day, Margaret would be seen enjoying a cup of coffee at social places in Nairobi.

She is a mother of two sons namely, Jaba and Jomo and one daughter named Ngina. She was also seen recently at The Hague where she accompanied her husband who is the new President elect of Kenya with her son Jomo.

  26. Great Woman.. you did good UK. Kenya we have OUR Michelle O.

  27. Humility is the word. Keep it there Margaret you will be miserable otherwise. Do look out for our lovely turkana women. They took care of our first president . They tend to be isolated. Be assuring to them that their children are safe in your hands and they will get quality education that will enable them make them have choices in life. Reach out to them and the rendille and jemps too. You will discover that life gets very fulfilled. Ran away from the greedy, the trivial and the selfish. God bless you as you become the best role model in the country and it could be Africa , why not?!

  28. Margaret, as you carry out your wifely and first lady duties, I know you have the ICC issue nagging at core of your soul. But let me assure you and the many friends of your family that the rise of Kenyatta to the presidency could only happen by a miracle, and by a similar miracle the cases will vanish into nothingness. God bless Kenya.

  31. I do not agree with the choice of her husband, but she is a breath of fresh air, no slapping, slapping, fighting in public, etc. She needs just simple public speaking training, it is all about training. She will grow into her role. I like her keeping a low profile... good way to let the snakes, and opportunist come out(and they will).

  60. Maggie you are adorable. Wow mother, wow wife,wow first lady. For those bothered by her age,dont expect her to dye her hair any time soon so that she can look younger. She is a real African woman not ready to use dyes whose origin only heaven knows. For you others check out her wedding photo and see how a young innocent girl she was. Keep it up Mum. you are doing a good job.
