Moi’s Daughter-in-Law Making Her Name in Safari Rally

  • The family of the late former President Daniel Arap Moi has continued to dominate various sectors in Kenya, from politics to business, and even sports.

    The latest entrant into the Moi family legacy is Faith Milka, one of the wives of the late Jonathan Moi, eldest son of the second President of Kenya.

    Milka is one of the women who have registered for the first ever women’s Safari rally in Kenya scheduled for Sunday, March 27 at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani.

    Revealing her reason for participating in the first women’s rally in the country, Milka detailed she wants to keep alive the rich legacy that was left behind by her late husband, Jonathan Moi.

    “I am glad to have had a life partner who is a former and great Safari Rally driver. He taught me how to drive and inspired me to race. By being in his life, I was equipped and it gave me the drive that I can do it because he taught me,” she stated.

    She added, “I am doing this to celebrate him. He is my hero and I am definitely looking to make him proud. I am glad to be here. This is for Jonathan Moi.”

    Milka stated the inauguration of the first female Safari rally competition in Kenya which will see 10 women drape on fast wheels, is a step towards inspiring other women to venture into the sport.

    “It is long overdue but thank God we are here now. We are ready to show the men that we are up to the task. It is a great thing for women and we want also to encourage more to be involved,” Milka explained.

    Despite not competing in any official race, Milka has been practicing on different highways in preparation for the race. 

    Her late husband, Jonathan navigating alongside his co driver the late Ibrahim Choge was part of the trio comprising Patrick Njiru and Phineas Kimathi that carried Kenya’s name in Safari rally for ages.

    Moi’s son left three widows, first wife Sylvia Jonathan,  Beatrice Kipkemboi and Milka.
