Kenyan Billionaires' Children Who Created Success Away From Family Empires

For Kenyan tycoons, their storied careers have been widely documented, with some building their companies from the ground up and others inheriting fortunes.

However, their offspring frequently lead solitary lives. Like their fathers, some of them receive support as they pursue various businesses and professions, while others take over family businesses.

Rita Field Marsham

Rita Field Marsham made headlines after Nicholas Biwott, a former cabinet minister, passed away. She refused to share in her father's fortune.

Marsham is a well known attorney and benefactor.

Rita is the director of the Scholar Athlete Program (KenSAP), which has sent over 130 underprivileged Kenyan students to prestigious universities abroad.

She has led a number of successful charitable organizations, including Knowledge Empowering Youth and Glorious and Free Foundation. Rita also sits on the board of the Andre De Grasse Family Foundation.

Robert Kirubi

Robert Kirubi gained notoriety when he chose to pursue his own career in Europe rather working for the family's multibillion dollar enterprise.

The son of Chris Kirubi has ten years of DHL experience. He presently serves as the organization's Head of Global Customer Programs.

Alongside other elites, he attended school with people like former President Uhuru Kenyatta and media star Jeff Koinange.

Robert and Mary Anne Kirubi, the first daughter of Kirubi, received 80% of their father's inheritance despite turning down the chance to work for the family firm.

Ngina Kenyatta

Ngina Kenyatta, the only girl child of former President Uhuru Kenyatta, is no stranger to the spotlight despite her capacity to lead a solitary existence. Ngina has strayed from the political heritage of the family. She is the proprietor of the Kiambu County restaurant called Green Experience.

The restaurant offers an open area with tents that includes plush sofas, cutting-edge cuisine, and luxurious furniture.
