Due to politicising the matter, we wont have the First Lady Half Marathons

She has hover assured the nation of her relentless effort to better health in Kenya.

In a press statement to the media, the First Lady said this year’s marathon is highly politicized, weighing down on her core business of making health facilities accessible by all.

In the statement, however, she has insisted that this year’s marathon would have been to celebrate the achievements that have been made so far.

“I have never been willing to politicize this agenda. As a consequence I feel it necessary to cancel the First Lady’s Half Marathon this year,” the statement read in part.

The First Lady has, however, assured the country that the cause remains until the ultimate goal, which is the betterment of maternal health care in this country, and to build the Beyond Zero Referral Hospital is achieved.

“I remain committed to and will not deviate from my ultimate goal, which is the betterment of maternal healthcare in this country, and, to build the Beyond Zero Referral Hospital. I want to reassure all Kenyans that this is a commitment that will remain with me throughout my life,” she said.

She has however congratulated Kenyans for supporting the initiative saying, “We have done more together than I imagined possible. We have run marathons and raised enough money to purchase 47 fully equipped mobile clinics delivered to every single county in Kenya.”

“Throughout the last four years, our partners — from ordinary Kenyans, to workers in the health sector, to civil society, to policy makers, to the business community and international donors — have given Beyond Zero the inspiration and impetus it has needed to keep going,” she said.
