Whether by coincidence or determined so, Kenya’s Â First Lady Mama Margaret Kenyatta will be in Boston over the weekend to participate in the Boston Marathon which former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has already been booked in as one among many Kenyans to cheer hundreds of compatriots in the finishing line.
As recently happened in Nairobi, Margaret, wife of President Uhuru Kenyatta, will be in the race to raise awareness in her continuing campaign “Below Zero” which seeks to reduce child and mother deaths during birth in Kenya.
While launching the event in Nairobi, the affable First Lady received a full government reception at the finishing point with commander in chief awaiting to receive her. He did not disappoint. In Boston, Mama Margaret will have to make do with the man who almost sent her husband to opposition benches or political oblivion had KamwanaÂ and dark forces not rigged the last presidential elections (accept and move on).
It will be a sight to behold.
The First Lady is in Eldoret currently training alongside other seasoned athletes.
