I married Margaret because of my father's push - Uhuru makes rare confession

When parents speak blessings in your life

Speaking at State House on Wednesday, Uhuru confessed that he first met Margaret while he was a young boy and had gone swimming with his father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

He added that it was his father who pushed him to start a friendship with Margaret and ultimately to their marriage which started in 1989.

"I first met Margaret when I was out swimming with my father and he nudged me to befriend her. I have now known her for most of my life. She is my friend, partner and strong supporter. Strong and successful women make a strong and successful Kenya. Happy International ," Uhuru stated.

In a past interview, the President had admitted that it took many years to convince Margaret to be his wife after their first meeting in Mombasa.

"When I met her she wasn't the First Lady, she was just another wonderful, beautiful  girl," he stated of his beloved wife.

The Head of  State spoke at State House to a group of women leaders who were hosted by the First Lady to make International Women's day.
