First Lady Margaret Kenyatta yesterday delivered her maiden speech, unfortunately outside Kenya. She spoke at the 12th meeting of Organisation of First Ladies Against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) in Addis Ababa, where she expressed her desire to use her position and influence in society to champion the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS.
The first lady is known to be extremely shy, when it comes to speaking to a crowd. During their visit to the UK recently, she was overwhelmed by stage fright when Kenyans in London demanded she addresses them.
Yesterday was the first time most Kenyans heard her talk, and just like her husband, the English is superb.
Here’s the video.
