This candid moment between the couple has reignited interest in their long-standing relationship, which began in their school days.

In a heartfelt revelation, Uhuru once shared how he met the former first lady during their high school days.


"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. We started a relationship that has lasted from high school until now. I am thankful to God for that," said Kenyatta.

The couple's journey together took a significant step forward when they tied the knot in 1989 at the Holy Family Basilica, a ceremony officiated by the late Maurice Cardinal Otunga.


Born on April 8, 1964, to Njuguna Gakuo, a former director of the Kenya Railways Corporation, and his German wife, Magdalena, Margaret Wanjiru Gakuo Kenyatta has carved her own path of influence and admiration.

As First Lady, her initiatives, particularly in health and education, have left indelible marks on the fabric of Kenyan society.
