Nairobi, KENYA: President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta on Saturday hosted a Christmas party for children of state house staff and those of police officers attached to presidential security units.

Children from various children homes were invited to attend the day long party as well as celebrity children among them 13 year old Leyla Mohammed who made a moving rendition of the famous “wimbo wa historia.”

During the party at State House, Nairobi, the children were treated to live music, bouncing castles, virtual reality, arts and other fun games.

The children were also given a chance to view the cars that are part of the presidential convoy. Also part of the exhibition of vehicles was the car that founding President Jomo Kenyatta used to ride in.

President Kenyatta and the First Lady danced and made merry with the children, took photos and engaged in a cocktail of entertainment activities.

The children also got an opportunity to field questions to the President on a number of issues covering children welfare and the Big 4 development agenda.

To crown the day, the President and the First Lady led the children in cake cutting, singing Christmas carols and in a colorful display of firework.
