The popular Kenyan activist received an autographed letter from Barack Obama who is the president of the world’s most powerful country. The letter was reported to have been sent from the White House.
The US President showed gratitude to Mr. Boniface Mwangi for his wonderful gift. The letter reads, “struck by your story, and I want you to know I am grateful for your continued support for our shared values.”
Mr. Boniface Mwangi opened up about the letter saying he did write to Obama a personal letter in which the contents he refused to reveal. However, he claimed to have written about the struggles that we all face and the strength or virtues that we have to apply. He said, “I wrote about the struggles we all face and how we apply virtues like integrity, courage…which are all universal,”
The reply to his letter by Obama read, “Though we all come from different traditions and communities, I believe each of us has power to make the world we seek. When joined together by a common set of ideals, our diversity makes us stronger. As long as we hold firm to our principles and back our beliefs with courage and resolve, then I am confident hope will overcome fear, and freedom will continue to triumph over tyranny – because that is what stirs in the human heart.
Again, thank you for reaching out. Please know letters like yours mean a great deal to me, and they keep me going every single day.”
