Ngina Kenyatta is the only daughter of Kenya’s president Uhuru Kenyatta. Coming from a wealthy and influential family that has produced two presidents, she had the privilege of pretty much trying out anything she wanted regardless of the monetary implications. Away from the multi-billion business empire owned by the family, she decided to chart her own path in the business world by joining the hospitality industry.
In this article, WoK takes you inside Ngina Kenyatta’s posh restaurant named ‘The Green Experience.’
