DAILY POST: Here is the woman who showed MAMA NGINA KENYATTA how to dress– She was bad in dressing and embarrassing JOMO



Saturday December 8, 2018-Former Central Bank of Kenya governor,
Duncan Ndegwa, has revealed how former First Lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, used to embarrass
late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta during Cabinet and State functions.

 In his memoir, Walking
in Kenyatta’s Struggles: My Story
,Ndegwa wrote that Mama Ngina was too
bad in dressing and this made Kenyatta angry.
Having been
sought from the village, Ngina was a simple and rural lady who despite the
exposure that came with the ‘First Lady’ tag, couldn’t immediately adopt.
With a lot of frustration, Kenyatta sought the
help of Nyiva Mwendwa, then the wife of Chief Justice Kitili Mwendwa who was
already in the know on how to rock Calico dresses and hold wine glasses.
Mwendwa would
spend hours in the presidential palace to dress Ngina ahead of every event,
well, until the latter became used to the new lifestyle.
 Following her relations with Mama Ngina, Nyiva
Mwenda became the first female in Kenya to be appointed to the Cabinet.
