Uhuru Congratulates Margaret For Being The First “1st Lady” To Finish A Marathon

We are used to having the same types of  Marathon races year in year out including among others Ndakaini half marathon and the standard chartered  marathon that usually have a big turnout. This year things are happening a bit different after the 1st Lady Margaret Kenyatta championed the “Beyond Zero” Campaign  by launching her marathon dubbed as the Margaret Kenyatta Marathon whose aim was to reduce preventable maternal and child deaths.

Margret Kenyatta ensured that she did not just launch the marathon but also became part of team that was competing in the marathon. Amazingly she did not just start and stopped after a few meters as many might have predicted rather she ended up finishing the entire race thereby  making her the first “1st Lady” in the world ever to finish a marathon.

President Kenyatta who was among the many Kenyans who attended the marathon was deeply moved by her wife’s great display of leadership in finishing the race . He publicly congratulated his wife and thanked Kenyans for turning up in large numbers for the event and supporting the campaign.

See what he said:

 I could not be prouder of Margaret for running and finishing the marathon today, the first by a First Lady anywhere on the globe. She did this as part of her Beyond Zero campaign whose goal is to improve maternal health care, and to buy mobile clinics to ensure that many of our people have access to important health facilities. Thank you all for the support you showed today. God Bless you all.
