Thursday November 22, 2018– Kenya’s First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta, hosted her Mozambique counterpart, Isaura Nyusi, and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida, at a State Banquet in State House yesterday evening.
However, conspicuously missing from the ladies’ dinner at State House was Deputy President William Ruto’s wife, Rachel, who would otherwise be in attendance.
Margaret and Ida used the opportunity to convince Nyusi to accompany them on today’s trip to Nyanza where the First Lady is expected to preside over the official launch of the Beyond Zero Medical Safari, Kisumu Chapter.
“Accompanying H.E Margaret Kenyatta will be the First Lady of Mozambique H.E Isaura Ferrão Nyusi,” read a statement released by Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o Communication Unit.
Margaret has been recognised globally for her Beyond Zero initiative which she launched in January 2014, with an aim of ensuring that no mother or child dies before, during or after birth.
