Former Citizen TV news anchor Anne Kiguta is a proud parent after her all-grown son Uhuru got the opportunity to meet the Russian ambassador to Kenya Dimitry Maksyimichev.
Uhuru (Kiguta’s son) met the ambassador at a space-themed celebration marking 60 years of diplomatic relations between Kenya and the Russian Federation.
A happy Kiguta shared the good news on her socials confessing that her work affords her privilege to meet influential people around the world.
“My work affords me very few privileges but this is one of the most special ones: I had the singular honor to introduce the world’s greatest space geek, my son Uhuru, to HE the Russian Amb. to Kenya Dimitry Maksyimichev at a space-themed celebration marking 60 years of diplomatic relations between Kenya and the Russian Federation,” she said in part.
The former TV girl went on to narrate the experience her son had watching ‘The Challenge’, the first-ever feature film shot in space at the ISS.
“My little guy was almost quite literally over the moon to watch ‘The Challenge’, the first-ever feature film shot in space at the ISS. He could barely blink as the cosmonauts did their drills and the rocket launched 🥰🛰️🚀🧑🚀,” Anne Kiguta noted.
“Russia is a space power having achieved the first lunar landing with Luna 2 and delivered Sputnik 1, the first artificial earth satellite in space. It now aims to continue exploration on the lunar South Pole in what is being styled as a new space-race,”.
In her statement, Anne noted that Kenya and Russia aim to increase collaboration in science and technology as well as trade.
“In a time of complex diplomatic relationships and with great global questions on the table, there are still many ways nations can collaborate and space is one of them. Kenya and Russia aim to increase collaboration in science and technology as well as trade.
Congratulations to Kenya and Russia for navigating and maintaining pleasant relations and of course to my little universe, the real-life boss baby.😍🚀😎 🚀🧑🚀🌙,” Anne added.
Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with former President Uhuru Kenyatta's nephew Jomo Gecaga.
