Machakos First Lady Lilian Nganga on Saturday urged residents to take frequent physical exercises to keep off modern lifestyle diseases.

She was speaking at the Machakos Stadium after participating in a 10-kilometre half marathon dubbed ‘Machakos Fun Run’ where dozens of local residents participated.

Governor Alfred Mutua, who participated in the five-kilometre segment, said the Fun Run was a critical activity that compliments his government’s efforts to improve health and physical wellbeing of local residents.

Mutua said similar Fun Runs in future will involve persons with various physical challenges.

The Fun Run was sponsored by Standard Group, Coca-Cola, Machakos County Government and Athletics Kenya.
