Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka is a politician who has over the years gradually scaled the political ladder in Kenya. Even though critics have christened him ‘watermelon’ due to what they term as a fluid political stand, Kalonzo remains one of the forces to reckon with especially in Ukambani region where he remains the undisputed kingpin.
Besides politics, Kalonzo is a family man married to Pauline Musyoka. The two met in the ’70s during a christian union event when they were still in high school. As fate would have it, they went on to establish a blossoming relationship and got married in 1985.
Because a man’s success is generally judged by how much he moulds his children, Kalonzo has offered the best education for his four children. As such, all of them are professions in various fields ranging from law, media, music and finance as this article will reveal.

Kennedy Musyoka – EALA MP
The first born, Kennedy Musyoka is a Member of Parliament at the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA). Prior to this, he avoided the limelight until when he was nominated by the Wiper Party shortly after the 2017 general elections.
Even though the matter led to a public furore with many castigating Kalonzo Musyoka of nepotism, his son thinks he deserved the slot. According to him, he had worked hard in making his contributions for the Wiper Party. The first born also details that it was not a walk in the park to convince newly elected MPs to back him given the frosty relationship between the Jubilee party and the now defunct NASA coalition.
Initially, he contemplated the idea of joining Kenyan politics with a pinch of salt due to the rabble rousing that is associated with it.
Kennedy did his ‘O’ levels at the prestigious Brookhouse then pursued an undergraduate degree in International Relations in Australia before taking a law degree at the University of Nairobi.
At EALA, the 35 year old is the youngest parliamentarian and serves as the chair of the accounts committee. Aside from his busy schedule, he is also a businessman and farmer.
