America’s ambassador to Kenya Margaret ‘Meg’ Whitman relishes her excursion to Mt. Longonot

US ambassador to Kenya, Margaret ‘Meg’ Whitman,

United States of America ambassador to Kenya, Margaret ‘Meg’ Whitman, today took her husband to an excursion at Mt. Longonot, barely a fortnight into her arrival to the country.

In her Sunday walk at the slopes of Mt. Longonot, Mrs. Whitman lauded Kenya’s diversity in terms of natural resources that the country has, and ethnic backgrounds.

The United States ambassador then took to her social media handles to express contentment and a unique experience that she has seen in Kenya for those few days that she has been in the country. “Thrilling experience for my husband and me to hike Mt. Longonot today! (Kenya) is such a beautiful country and we are just getting started to #TembeaKenya,” tweeted Whitman, alongside photos of the couple at the Mountain’s Oloonongot crater point.

The ambassador is the first female United States’ administration’s representative in the country since the departure of Prudence Bushnell, the latter who is well remembered as one of the influential people who were directly trapped in the 1998 Nairobi bomb blast ordeal, which claimed lives in hundreds.

Her husband, Mr. Harsh IV, is an American neurosurgeon who is a direct descendant of Revolutionary War General, and North Carolina State Senator, Griffith Rutherford.

The ambassador is lucky to be one of the foreign dignitaries who have tasted the reign of former President Uhuru Kenyatta, and now the new administration under the current President William Ruto.
It is still early in the day to be gauged on how the relationship of the two countries will pan out. Going by the previous American ambassadors to Kenya, some of the ambassadors have had a very frosty relationship with previous administrations – like the firebrand Michael Ranneberger of the famous ‘choices have consequences’ refrain and one time Smith Hempstone, in the 1990s.
