Kenyans react to Uhuru Women’s Day celebratory message


International Women’s Day, started in 1910 and adopted by the United Nations in 1975, is celebrated on March 8 every year, to commemorate the achievement of women globally.

In Kenya, President Uhuru Kenyatta led the country in celebrating the day, which also coincided with the launching of Beyond Zero Strategic Framework 2018 – 2022.

In his twitter handle, the head of state sent the celebratory message. He also narrated how he met the first lady, Margaret Kenyatta.

Kenyans On Twitter (KOT) reacted to the post differently. President Uhuru Kenyatta said in his twitter handle,

 I first met Margaret when I was out swimming with my father and he nudged me to befriend her. I now know 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.

Some of the twitter users congratulated the first lady for her outstanding performances, especially in the health sector. The rest complained about the country’s direction.

Here are the reactions:

Despite everything, today I set aside our differences across the political divide and join the President of Kenya happy in wishing all the women a HAPPY DAY – Dr. Miguna Miguna‏ @MigunaMigunaKE

Is truly such a wonderful woman down to earth and very humble – Zosky Wahu‏ @zosky_wahu

Good Heavens. Why must some species of Kenyans wait for you to post something in order to drown you with an avalanche of abuses. Anyway, pray for them because the more they insult you, the more God will continue to bless you and all your loved ones – Mary Moll‏ @marymoll408

Why do Kenyans politicize even personal family message. Thank for your very touching message and your humility from despots – Harrison Njoroge‏ @knjorokenya

Don’t hate on Margaret.. It’s women’s day not ‘constitution’s day’! When that day comes speak louder at the ballot! – future legacy‏ @futurelegacy2

Great, back to our CULTURES – it is at the swimming pool that Margaret was ACCEPTED and became part of the family. Mzee’s blessings, no wonder the success! Nowadays people are getting married without even the knowledge of their parents and that explains the high rate of breakages – Symon Kimani‏ @SymonKimani

Please fall in love with Kenya as well. It will be the best polygamous marriage you will ever have – swabera‏ @SwaberaSaid

Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing! My president is a blessed man – Njatha Kago‏ @kago_njatha

He he, so I need to go swimming often,maybe someday I’ll meet my Margaret and become president – George Gasper‏ @GeorgeGasper4

Mr. President your wise father nudged to gold! Thank you for following his direction. If you hadn’t you wouldn’t so happy. I saw her project at the RCOG conference in Cape Town last year! Mobile clinics in all districts!! Wow! What a lady – Solwayo Ngwenya‏ @Solwayo1
