Nick Ndenda is a successful Kenyan lawyer based in Nairobi. He is proof that hard work, determination and resilience can get one far. In his short bio, he shared how at one point in his life he hawked and did odd jobs here and there in order to realise his dream. The lawyer is known for his sharp sense of style, well-groomed beards and confidence. In his profile, he describes himself as an advocate, an entrepreneur and a man on a mission to inspire the world and generations to come.
Over the past couple of weeks, he has been trending on social media after he was spotted with popular media personality Betty Kyalo getting all cosy. The two had been spotted together previously and finally confirmed that they were dating, something that got their fans talking.
He was born on 28th July but the exact year of birth remains under wraps. Betty sent her new lover a birthday message confirming she was heads of heels in love with the advocate.
“To A King Nick Ndeda Happy Birthday Honey????????. You are Brilliant, Kind, Selfless, Loving, God Fearing, Responsible but yet Lots of Fun, you see everything beautiful in me and You simply bring out the little girl in me! I thank God For You. Blessings to you. You’re the G.O.A.T. Let’s celebrate this most Genius Advocate and Man,” wrote the ex-K24 news anchor.
Nick attended St. Mary’s, Yala before going to Moi University for a Bachelor of Laws degree. After graduating from Moi University, he proceeded to Kenya School of Law for a Postgraduate diploma in Law.
Looking at his career profile one would say he is a jack of all trades. He has hawked and tried to sell water to docked ships in Mombasa. When this failed, he tried to offer exhauster services which was also a flop. He has also worked in the salon doing pedicures and manicures, ran an entertainment company, worked as a tout and as a farmer. Currently, he says he is building a bank and has ambitions of becoming the president of Kenya one day.
After trying his hands at all these jobs, he finally became a successful advocate.
Currently, he works as head of litigation at Conrad law & Consultancy Office. Previously, he has worked at Ecobank Kenya Limited and Nick Ndenda & Associates Advocates.
Wife And Children
Little was known about Nick Ndenda until he got involved with Betty Kyalo. According to ‘tea master’ Edgar Obare, the stylish advocate is still legally married to Jackie Atonga although they live separately. This is allegedly on account of Ndenda’s womanising ways. The lawyer has two kids with Jackie.
He is the founder of Nick Ndenda Foundation. The foundation intervenes in the lives of rural children with a bias towards the basic human needs. In his website, he says they empower the youth to pursue their talents, businesses, passions, and dreams. While the idea to start the foundation was embedded somewhere in his mind, he became inspired when he met a young delivery man named Apollo. Apollo asked for his email address and the lawyer thought he would send him a detailed CV. Instead, he sent a proposal seeking a loan of Kes15,000. He took a chance on Apollo and much later he sent Ndenda an email once again, this time an employment contract for him to review as he was in the process of hiring.
The foundation primarily is meant to create self sustaining opportunities for the youth.
