Thursday, July 11, 2019- Former First Lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, has issued a rallying call to Kenyan youth to be patriotic and put the interests of the country first.
Speaking at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi during the memorial service of the late Jeremiah Kiereini, Mama Ngina challenged the youth to emulate past leaders like the late former Head of Civil Service and Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
She reckons that Kenya will realise much more growth and development if Kenya’s youthful leaders emulate the country’s past leaders.
“Jeremiah Kiereini and the leaders who were there before led by Mzee Jomo Kenyatta laid a good foundation for this country.
“If only the leaders we have today could be trustworthy like those who there before, this country would have made great progress, ” she said.
“I ask the current generation to put the interests of the country first so that you can steer this country in the right direction and inculcate good morals and patriotism to your children.”
Mama Ngina Kenyatta is among a rare breed of women who were married to presidents and gave birth to presidents.
She married a president-the late founding father of the nation Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and gave birth the current Kenyan president-Uhuru Kenyatta.
Only five such women remain alive today including Mama Ngina.
