Kenya: First Lady Margaret Kenyatta Arrives in USA for Harvard University Leadership Forum


Cambridge, Usa — First Lady Margaret Kenyatta arrived in Massachusetts, USA, on Sunday for an official visit that will see her deliver the keynote address at an annual leadership forum for Education and Health Ministers at Harvard University among other official engagements.

Kenya will be represented at the ministerial level by Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki at the four-day Harvard forum that kicked off on Sunday.

The plane carrying the First Lady and her entourage touched down at Boston Edward Logan International Airport shortly before 2.00 p.m. (local time).
