First Lady Margaret Kenyatta: Behind her composure, calmness and collectedness – exhibited both in public and private –, is a woman, who is very firm; unbending to an extent her husband – the Head of State for that matter: President Uhuru Kenyatta –, says he has to be very careful of what he says and does, lest he attract the wrath of his better half.
President Kenyatta made the revelation at State House, Nairobi on Thursday, March 8 during the launch of the 2nd Strategic Framework for the engagement of the First Lady in the promotion of healthy lives and well being of women, children and adolescents 2018-2022.
Addressing attendees of the function after concluding his speech, President Kenyatta said: “I want to introduce to you a lady I have known for most of my life. I met for the first time when I was swimming with my father and he told me: ‘This one looks good’. And behold some 20 years later, it came to pass. She has been my friend, my companion, supporter, humble, quiet… but as I and my children can attest, very firm and when required, very kali! So, I have to be very, very careful!”
In her response to President Kenyatta, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta said: “His Excellency the President is one partner who deserves a special mention for his unfailing and unwavering support. Thank you (Pres. Kenyatta).”
President Kenyatta and Margaret Kenyatta tied the knot in 1991.
