President Uhuru’s daughter-in-law Achola Ngobi attended a prestigious school in South Africa that charges up to Kes 1.2 million as school fees.
Even before she flew to South Africa to pursue education, Achola studied at the prestigious Pembroke House which follows the British Common Entrance curriculum, and is also one of the oldest international boarding prep schools in Kenya.
After Pembroke House, Achola headed to South Africa where she studied at St Anne’s Diocesan College, an expensive private girls’ boarding school situated in the small town of Hilton in the KwaZulu-Natal province.
Just like Pembroke House school, majority of students at St Anne’s Diocesan College are also white, with a rich backgrounds.
The school was founded in 1877 to provide education exclusively for white students. After the end of apartheid in South Africa, black students were admitted.
The serenity of St Anne’s Diocesan College tells you students from poor backgrounds have no business there.
School fee at St Anne’s Diocesan College is also ridiculously expensive; boarding plus tuition fee per term is 42,660 South African Rand or 313,183 Kenyans shillings. That translates to 170,640 South African Rand or 1.2 million Kenyan Shillings per annum.
Achola was an all rounded student during her time at St Anne’s Diocesan College; she won numerous academic awards and served as Vice-Captain for the netball team.
It’s also believed that she met Jomo Kenyatta while in South Africa; her husband attended Hilton College, another prestigious private boarding school for boys also located near Hilton town.
