Harambee Starlets captain Mary Kinuthia has described this festive season as her “best ever”, considering the strides she has made in her career this year.

In an exclusive interview with Nairobi News, the 25 year old footballer also shared some of the memorable Christmas celebrations she has experienced.

“Christmas was always special to me when growing up. My parents would take us to the village where we would celebrate in style, by going to church, eating good food, getting new clothes and dancing up until late into the night,” the Thika Queens player recalls.


Now, and after a memorable outing on the football pitch this year, which culminated in her leading the national team to two major tournaments Uganda and Cameroon, Kinuthia says she will use this particular festive season to celebrate her achievements.

“The festive season is a time to reflect. It has been a memorable year for me, almost everything went according to plan. I achieved more than I asked for, so I will take time and celebrate that, and also make time to think about the less fortunate,” she added.
