Kenyan president on the occasion of 2018 International Women’s Day celebrations, disclosed a ‘summary’ of how he met Margaret Kenyatta, the First Lady.
According to Uhuru, it involved a day out swimming, his father was involved and heeding the old man’s advice was also crucial. He also stressed the importance of women in building a strong nation.
His tweet read: “I first met Margaret when I was out swimming with my father and he nudged me to befriend her. I have now known her for most of my life.
“She is my friend, partner and strong supporter. Strong and successful women make a strong and successful Kenya. Happy International #WomensDay,” he added. In what could be described as a tacit confirmation, the First Lady’s official account retweeted the account.
The 53-year-old Margaret and Uhuru got married in 1991 and the couple have three children – Jomo, Ngina and Jaba. She has been first lady since April 2013 when Uhuru was sworn into office.
