President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday took to his social media platform to send a heartwarming message to his wife First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
The president lauded his wife for finishing the 10km First Lady Half Marathon which was held on Sunday morning in Nairobi successfully.
Through his Twitter handle, the President wrote:
Congratulations my love and @FirstLadyKenya. I just watched you cross the finish line on my online live stream. I am proud of you #BeyondZero.
President Kenyatta hinted that his wife’s determination got his eyes glued to the internet as he followed the race from start to finish.
The president has shown the public that he stands by his wife on several occasion. He, in the last edition of the race, took time off his very busy schedule to stand at the finish line where he passionately welcomed his First Lady.
This last edition, the president though touring Ghana on official duty, was forced to follow his wife’s performance in the race through the internet so as not to miss out on the outcome.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also addressed participants in a video during the 3rd Edition of the First Lady’s Half Marathon held in support of the Beyond Zero Campaign.
Shortly after the completion of the race, the president in his video below, apologized for not being around in this year’s edition as he went to Ghana to discuss bilateral issues with the Ghanaian president.
He also added that the First lady’s initiative amazes and makes him extremely proud for working to cut down maternal and infant mortality as well as cutting down HIV in the country.
The marathon featured about 40,000 committed participants who also joined the First lady to the finish line.
Many notable people who took part in the race include Deputy President William Ruto and Rwanda’s First Lady Jeannette Nyiramongi Kagame. First Lady Mrs Kagame, 53, was joined in the marathon by 20 people close to her, including her family and employees.
The aim of the marathon is to raise funds for the provision of free maternal health care to all. Apparently the initiative is making a progress factoring the number of mobile clinics already donated to different counties.
Despite the Jubilee government visible struck by several corruption cases, the First Lady has refused to let any of these bring down her efforts to bring health to Kenya.
Her individual effort calls for generosity, goodwill, charity, love and philanthropic contributions.
