State House is the official residence of the President of the republic of Kenya. The state house is well-known for its lavish green gardens and tight security throughout the day and night.
It was by then called then Duke of York School, the school was reserved for white students only within the Kenya Colony. All teachers who were teaching in the school were also white and students were drawn from the sons of British settlers.
Students from the school were briefly housed at State House as they awaited completion of their dormitories and got to enjoy the nice ambience of the palace.
In recent years, the said School has been consistently been ranked among the best performing schools in national examinations and co-curricular activities including drama and sports.
In the early 1960s, the school was fully developed and it has its own well kept 9-hole golf course, rifle range, horse stables, a cricket oval with a cricket pavilion, and ample sports fields for rugby, football, hockey, swimming, tennis, squash, and other sports.
Is there any person who was among the students who were housed in this luxurious place in the past days?
