Uhuru Kenyatta recalled how he first met his wife, Margaret, while in high school. “This is an interesting one,” responded the President when someone asked about his relationship with the first lady.
“How did I meet the First Lady? When I met her she was not the first lady. She was an ordinary, wonderful and beautiful girl,” said a beaming Uhuru, before proceeding to reveal how he won the heart of Kenya’s future first lady.
It turned out that to win Margaret, Uhuru went through her elder brother, his school mate at St Mary’s High School.
“I first met her brother. We went to the same secondary school and quickly became friends and it is through him that I managed to meet his younger sister and we started a relationship that has lasted from high school until now. I am thankful to God for that,” said Uhuru.
The couple married at the Holy Family Basilica in 1989 presided over by the late Maurice Cardinal Otunga and they have three children-Jomo, Jaba and Ngina Kenyatta.
