Meet The Shemeji Of President Uhuru Who First Introduced Uhuru To First Lady Margaret In High School

Just like a journey of 1000 miles starts with a, step, a love story also starts with a hi. This was the case for the love journey of President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta whereby they have been in marriage for 32 years

Well, President Uhuru Kenyatta did not just face young Margaret Wanjiku since she seemed to be very strict. President Uhuru confessed that he got to know Margaret via his elder brother, Maina Gakuo.

It is, good to note that President Uhuru Kenyatta and Maina Gakuo were classmates at St Mary's School. To add, both their parents were friends whereby both Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Ephantus Njuguna Gakuo were village mates in Kiambu.

Back to the shemeji of President Uhuru, Maina Gakuo thus introduced Uhuru to his sister Margaret who at that time was schooling at Kianda School. Uhuru and Margaret would later turn from friends to lovers before they made it formal through their marriage that was held at Holy Family Basilica church in Nairobi

Despite being in laws, President Uhuru Kenyatta has maintained a close relationship with his, former classmate Maina Gakuo
