At least as at 18 years old, when he was still a student at Brookhouse School he was already an entrepreneur with 2 start-ups under his belt. He is handsome, and calm, and could have been excused if he had sat down to live large on his mother’s wealth. after-all, it’s not easy being a son, and when you have the public eye on you because of your parent’s position, it can put enormous pressure on a young person.

5. Jomo, Ngina And Muhoho Kenyatta
The Kenyatta Siblings: Jomo, Ngina, and Muhoho are President Uhuru Kenyatta’s children. These kids are like royalty in Kenya; their grandfather was also President of Kenya. The Kenyatta siblings have a lavish lifestyle that even they cannot explain; chauffeured everywhere they go; escorted by security since their birth, and given the five-star treatment every day of their lives. Even without ever lifting a finger; the Kenyatta Siblings are hands down the richest kids in Kenya.
One thing you have to respect the Kenyatta’s for is that they know how to build and expand wealth. Their grandfather Jomo Kenyatta made extensive and strategic investments in land and real estate; their father Uhuru Kenyatta has made extensive investments in financial and technology companies, and now they too are investing.
Ngina owns her own restaurant while the sons have top management roles in some of the family-owned businesses.
6. Wabosha Maxine
Wabosha Maxine is a Kenyan internet sensation. You have only to look at her picture once and you are going to fall in love with her. She has leveraged her beauty and talent, and she has gone on to build a brand for herself. Wabosha Maxine has nearly half a million followers on Instagram; per video, she gets around 70k views immediately, and many more are unaccounted for because they are shared by users who are not logged in.
She is one of the few young people in Kenya who live a high life independently of any political names; she is 100 percent self-made. Her work as a beauty and lifestyle content creator has earned her millions in revenue from advertisements on her various internet platforms, and also from brand endorsements because brands are always falling over themselves for her.
The richest kids in Kenya mostly come from wealthy families with solid foundations that allow them to live the lavish lifestyles that they are known for. One must therefore salute the few who have climbed this social ladder all by themselves, without having a political name, or a family fortune to fall back on.
