The Beyond Zero Campaign was launched by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

In a bid to improve maternal and child health outcomes in Kenya, the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta launched the ‘Beyond Zero Campaign’.

However, 5 years on this philanthropic campaign is eliciting severe backlash from Kenyans. This is because Kenyans feel that despite the several Beyond Zero half-marathons held to raise money, maternal healthcare is still sub-par.

On the other hand, others feel that the campaign is just another scam while others expressed that the taxes we pay should be enough for a good healthcare system. A section of celebrities who have associated themselves with the campaign have been dragged by their lace fronts.

Sheila Mwanyigha recently sent out a tweet to encourage Kenyans to run this year in the ‘Beyond Zero’ Marathon but they have made it clear that they are not boarding.

See some of the reactions below:

kevin midigo: No thank you...Mahali nimefika siwezi kimbishwa na madeni alafu nikimbie marathon

Dauti Kahura: There's nothing charitable about this run....

Deputy Sherrif: Why participate to enrich the few while people like Boniface murage can't even afford hospital bill for the kid . What is purpose of beyond zero marathon anyway??

 danP: Tell Mama to tell Papa to take charge of the country and fix this corruption menace. Then will not need to run to raise funds the so called charitable initiatives

#BeHumble: Punda amechoka

Gathoni: Nah. Will wash my hair instead. Or something

Bryan: hehe.. mbio za sakafuni while Nyokafi is carting off mabilioni from mAfya house.

Joe Vega : Kimbia peke yako pls.

WEKESA LEONARD: If only the run was to ensure medics are adequately paid, facilities equipped, patient to medic ratio reduced and public health cover improved, I would have forced all my family members to participate and even supervise their participation. Hii ingine akimbilie state house

Ahmed Jama: This is nothing but a socialite event, it's got nothing to do with charity or anything noble.

Chairman Muthusi: Another con game........

We have a Government that must take care of society's medical needs.

Stop this nonsense of running to massage the ego of cartels.

 Robin Hood: Not boarding what we need is to run away from all this corruption

NERD: We shouldn't even have to run for maternal health tbh as in??
