See What Margaret Kenyatta has told CS Amina Mohammed

Mrs. Kenyatta, through her long Facebook post, has described the CS as both an inspiration and mentor of many Kenyans.

“CS had steadfastly sacrificed her life and comfort towards improving the condition of Africa, protecting the interests of the continent and redefining the terms of Africa’s relationship with the world,”  the First Lady wrote.

In her post, she heaped praises to the first Kenyan diplomat to contest for the post expressing her admiration for CS’s ability to balance the delicate demands of being Kenyan’s highest ranking diplomat and the challenging duties of being a wife and mother.

Ambassador Mohammed has left the country for Addis Ababa for a gender conference before heading to Benin for further official engagements and then return to Addis Ababa for the AU Assembly elections that are expected to fill all the 10 positions including AUC Deputy chairperson and 8 commissioners.

“Even as she travelled the world working incessantly to broker bilateral agreements and preserve peace, I have seen her simultaneously prioritize her family; her children and their wellbeing, their milestones, their lives," wrote the First Lady

Besides these huge tasks, said the First Lady, Ambassador Mohammed found time for women and the youth whom she supported, inspired, motivated and encouraged in various ways.

“She has modeled these virtues while giving grace to those who earnestly try to do the same”, she added.

Other speakers who heaped more praise on Ambassador Mohammed included her cabinet colleagues Dr. Raychel Omamo ( Defence), Sicily Kariuki ( Public Service, Youth and Gender),Ms Kristina Platt, Supreme Court Judge Njoki Ndung’u , Senator Zipporah Kittony and longtime friend Mrs Wairimu Karago.

Collaborative partnerships
