The Kenyatta family are known to have major investments in every sector of the economy.

In the Education sector, the ruling family owns Peponi House School which is located along the Thika Superhighway on the Gicheha farm in Ruiru.

Prominent people to have attended the lavish school include: President Kenyatta's youngest son (Muhoho), as well as Royal Media Services MD Wachira Waruru's son (Waruru).
