She has not been seen in public since December
The First Lady has not spoken or been seen in public since December 17th when she, together with President Uhuru Kenyatta, hosted a Christmas party for orphaned children at State House.
On Thursday, news of Kenya Airways having direct flights to the United States prompted Margaret to issue a congratulatory message from her twitter page.
The First Lady has for the past five years been a central figure in her husband's administration, dedicating herself to various charity activities.
Margaret founded the Beyond Zero campaign which raises funds for maternity health. She has also become a leading champion against elephant hunting in the country.
