Kenya First Lady Margaret Kenyatta today made history by becoming the first African First Lady to complete in and finish the 42km London Marathon.

Margret, who turned 50 last week, finished at a time of 07:05:28. She was competing as part of promoting theBeyond Zero campaign, which aims to promotematernal and child health.

At the finish line to congratulate the First Lady was President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mama Ngina Kenyatta and other close family members.

Both the men’s and women’s races were won by Kenyans, with Wilson Kipsang finishing the men’s race at a time of 2:04:27. Edna Kiplagat took the women’s raceat a time of 2:20:19. The second spots in both the men’s and women’s races were also taken by Kenyans.

When the sun sets tomorrow, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta is expected to have accomplished a lifetime feat of conquering the London Marathon circuit and being the first ever First Lady to do so.

It’s a culmination of two months of get-ready-for it that has thrust the erstwhile publicity-shy Mrs Kenyatta into the news at home and around the world.

Despite her family’s high profile, Mrs Kenyatta has succeeded in keeping away from the prodding public eye, preferring to lead a quiet, reserved and behind-the-scenes life away from the glare of cameras and insatiable curiosity of prying journalists.

But it was never going to be easy to maintain such privacy for long — not when she is the daughter-in-law of Kenya’s founding President and wife of the country’s fourth President.It would also not have gone entirely under wraps when she elected to take up marathon running for the sake of giving Kenya’s beleaguered medical system a shot in the arm.

Mrs Kenyatta now thrusts herself into full global glare from 10.30a.m. (Kenyan time) when she lines up at London’s famous Greenwich Park at the start of the 42.195km London Marathon in which she is running to raise funds for her “Beyond Zero” campaign that seeks to eliminate preventable maternal and early childhood deaths.

As time goes by, Kenyans are getting to know their First Lady, an alumnus of Nairobi’s prestigious Kianda School, who has passionately taken to raising funds for the purchase of 47 mobile clinics to augment the country’s over-stretched, bed-ridden healthcare infrastructure. – Daily Nation

I have a debt of Sh20,000 that I know not how to pay back and for your information my soul worships the devil… my soul is forcing me to do so, I beg they will take any of us if I do not pay and that is why I am running away dear mum.”


That was a daughter’s chilling message to her parents before she fled home, never to return.

Form Two student Ruth Beryl had admitted she had been recruited into a mysterious cult — and warned her parents that unless she paid the “debt”, the entire family would perish.

The handwritten letter was left on the table in the living room of the family home in the city’s Ziwani estate on the day Ruth was last seen.

I was an ‘E’ student, Sonko tells Kidero

Mr Sonko said he was so poor in accounting and mathematics that he could not audit the county government’s finances.

“Contrary to your views that I am using the Auditor General’s report to settle political scores, please note that I did not order for any audit report nor did I participate in the investigations.

“My academic credentials, especially in mathematics and accounts cannot allow me to come up with such a comprehensive report. I got a constant ‘E’ in my KCSE mathematics exam,” he said.

He was responding to a scathing attack from Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero who had accused him of sabotaging the county government’s development agenda.

Sustained witch-hunt

Dr Kidero had accused Mr Sonko of engaging in a sustained witch-hunt campaign, instead of joining forces with other leaders to develop the county.

“The county government believes you should be part of the solution and not a cynical critic and saboteur of its well-meant efforts,” said the Governor.

“We are concerned that Sonko, as Senator for Nairobi, continues using incitement and postures meant to intimidate, embarrass and frustrate service delivery,” he added.

But in a rejoinder, Sonko maintained that his role entailed providing oversight over County Hall.

“Charged with the role of oversight, I cannot sit back and watch as millions of taxpayers’ money goes to individual’s pockets. It is the high time you took responsibility and tell Nairobians who pocketed the money, how you plan to recover it, disciplinary measures taken and plans to seal loopholes to avoid recurrence,” he said.
