She was my high school sweetheart-Uhuru Kenyatta

The president has spoken about how he met his wife and how their love blossomed.

Even as her husband’s popularity took a nose dive for the worst, Margaret’s was on the rise with more than a half of the Kenyan population expressing trust in the first lady. This can be attributed to her charity work through Beyond Zero campaign which aims to reduce maternal and child mortality.

Many have been curious about how the president landed such a great woman and on a Facebook Live session, the president shyly revealed that Margaret Kenyatta was his high school sweetheart.

Responding to a question about how they met Uhuru said:

"This is an interesting one. How did I meet the First Lady? Well, when I met her, she wasn’t the First Lady; she was just another wonderful, beautiful girl. Let me say that I first met her brother. Her brother and I were in secondary school together and we became friends.  And through him, I managed to meet his younger sister. And we started off a relationship that has lasted from high school until now. So, for all of you, who you meet today as a friend and as a partner, could be your First Lady tomorrow. So, I still see her as the girl I met in high school, not the First Lady ."
