Winnie Byanyima, UNAIDS Executive Director, Saturday packed her stuff in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital and shipped them off to Geneva, in Switzerland.

“Finally, I packed out of my home in Nairobi,” Winnie said.

She said 10 wonderful men helped her dismantle “my beautiful home, pack it in boxes and load it in a container headed to Geneva”.

She also took off some “girl time” to party with her friends before saying farewell.

“And before packing out, a party with the girls! #Nairobi forever!”
