Wives to Sons of Powerful Kenyan Politicians

Politicians in Kenyan often tend to keep their families away from the glitz and glamour that comes with the offices they hold. While a good number successfully manage to keep their families under the radar, others have shared news of their families in public or held public events that attracted national interest.

In this article, WoK takes a look at some of the wives to sons of Kenyan politicians.

Fiona Achola

Fiona Achola Ngobi is the wife to Jomo Kenyatta, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s firstborn son.

Achola is niece to Defence Cabinet Secretary (CS) Raychelle Omamo and granddaughter to the late former minister for Agriculture William Odongo Omamo.

She holds two Masters Degrees with sources indicating that she is an accountant at a local bank.

The couple held their traditional dowry and wedding ceremony in 2016 in Ichaweri, Gatundu – the first family’s home village.

In November 2017, Achola and Kenyatta welcomed their first child at Agha Khan Hospital, baby Wanjiru, who was named after the first lady Margaret Kenyatta.
