First Lady, MARGARET KENYATTA is the most ACTIVE First Lady in Kenya’s history - LUCY KIBAKI and Mama IDA ODINGA did nothing! – LENAH MOI was even nowhereOther Political News, Politics 06:37
Tuesday March 11, 2014 - Since President Uhuru Kenyatta took over the country’s leadership last year, Kenyans have honestly felt the impact of the First Lady’s office like never before, with Margaret Kenyatta unlike her predecessors, making it more visible.
The ever smiling First Lady has organised a series of campaigns against wildlife poaching, jigger infestation and recently the Beyond Zero campaign whose goal is to improve maternal health care and to buy mobile clinics to ensure many Kenyans have access to important health facilities.
She also organized a marathon which attracted over 5,000 participants including President Uhuru Kenyatta, Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, and Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi.
During her announcement for the marathon early last week this is what she said
“We run for the elimination of HIV/AIDS transmission from mother to child; we run because we want to keep newborns alive; we run for mothers to be able to hold their babies and celebrate their many birthdays after; we want to see every mother and child receive quality healthcare; every step you took in this marathon brought the dream of quality and affordable healthcare closer!!”
If we compare the work of Margaret Kenyatta with her predecessors who include Lenah Moi, Mama Lucy Kibaki and Mama Ida Odinga, the three will just look like zombies, because they did nothing to help the society when they occupied the position.
