Kenyan first lady Margaret Wanjiru Kenyatta

She is rarely seen in the public limelight but the humble soft spoken Kenyan first lady Margaret Wanjiru Kenyatta is not new to the cameras.

Born to former Director Of State Controlled Kenya Railways Corporation Njuguna Gakuo, Margaret went to the prestigious St. Andrews School in Molo, she met her husband Uhuru Kenyatta, who is her best friend in Mombasa and later on tied the knot at Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi in 1989.

According to her friends, she is a noble and simple woman who loves keeping her life normal despite the fact that she is married to the son of the first President of Kenya who is now the President. On a normal day, Margaret would be seen enjoying a cup of coffee at social places in Nairobi.

She is a mother of two sons namely, Jaba and Jomo and one daughter named Ngina. She was also seen recently at The Hague where she accompanied her husband who is the new President elect of Kenya with her son Jomo.
