Uhuru returns, ends fruitful two week trip

15 April 2014, 12:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta and first lady Margaret returned to the country after participating in the London marathon over the weekend.

The two arrived early Tuesday morning from the UK where they took the first lady's Beyond Zero campaign.

She run the famous 42 Kilometer course to completion for the sake of mothers and women who are either affected by HIV Aids, its effects as well as other routine illnesses, that the campaign aims to address.

" Realizing that this change starts with me, I have launched the Beyond Zero Campaign. This campaign aims at creating awareness and raising funds to tackle issues that affect maternal and child health issues and mother to child transmission of HIV," she has previously said.

"Mothers and children are suffering and dying in our country from avoidable causes - pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and HIV transmitted from their mothers. This saddens me as a mother and I know that it saddens you too. Together we can make a difference!", she believes.

The marathon completed a two week trip for president Kenyatta, which included visits to Belgium for the Europe- Africa summit, Rwanda, Turkey as well as the UK.

In Belgium, he brokered deals with European forces such as France on potential business and trade agreements with French president Francois Hollande.

He also stepped up his mission to ensure peace in Somalia and the greater region in his role as east African Community representative.

He also traveled to Rwanda to represent Kenya and the EAC in Rwanda's 1994 genocide remembrance celebrations.

He then took off to Turkey where he also brokered several deals including a landmark agreement that will see the Turks revamp the Kenya Police Service.
