First Lady Rachel Ruto has urged Kenyans to teach the younger generation of the history of Kenya as the nation marks Mashujaa Day.

Rachel quoted the first president of Kenya Mzee Jomo Kenyatta urging Kenyans to strive and make an impact for future generations.

"Our children may learn about heroes of the past. Our task is to make ourselves the architects of the future," Rachel used a quote by Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

In her Mashujaa Day celebrations message, the First Lady called upon Kenyans to belabour and continue the good work started by our forefathers.

Here is Rachel Ruto's full message

"The recognition, appreciation and celebration of great and iconic Kenyans who have and continue to raise our national flag up the global mast is the essence of our Mashujaa Day.

"Even as we commit to clear new paths for the posterity, we must teach the young the history of our nation so that they too can emulate and take pride in the acts of courage, resilience and dedication of our early champions. We must belabour, as a people, to build on their legacies and continue in the good work they started.

"It is said, 'heroes and heroines are made by the paths they choose, not the power they are graced with'. In our daily lives, the spirit of our National Heroes find expression through our words and deeds.

"In a special way, today, as we celebrate this 2022 Mashujaa Day, I would wish to acknowledge the contribution of the girls and women of Kenya in nation-building. Throughout history and around the world, women have had an immense influence on the development of societies.

"Even as they devote themselves for the growth of these societies, women have been met by a lot of setbacks. Some natural, others man-made. Literally. And, the Kenyan woman is not an exception. Juggling between work and family, the Kenyan woman has continued to fight for equality, social justice, women's rights and positions of leadership.

"Girls with dreams become women with vision. May we grow to be the Champions of Change. Happy Mashujaa Day," she says.
