The family of Tharaka Nithi Senator Prof Kithure Kindiki is one of such as he is the fifth in a line of brothers who boast of this impressive academic record. Kindiki holds a PhD in law from the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
His brother Prof Isaiah Iguna Kindiki is a Professor of Soil Physics. Isaiah is a Professor at the University of South Africa and a research professor at the University of Venda.
Another of the Kindiki’s is Prof Stephen Kithinji Kindiki, who is less known since he is not directly involved in politics. Kithinji is a professor of Linguistics at Daystar University while the fourth sibling, Prof Moses Mpuria Kindiki, teaches political economy at Maasai Mara University.
Their eldest brother, Prof Jonah Nyaga Kindiki, a Professor of International Education, is a lecturer at Moi University.
The five learned brothers owe their academic prowess to their hardworking father who rose from abject poverty to a respected cleric in the region.
The Retired Reverend Daniel Kindiki on the Methodist Church ensured all his sons got educated well.
Kindiki has two sisters. One is a teacher at Alliance Girls’ high school, while the other is a food technologist.
Professor Iguna during a past interview with a local daily, narrated that back then, there was no difference between Church and school and they hardly knew anything else out of the church and school.
