I am unable to get a genuine boyfriend - Uhuru's niece

Uhuru's 40-year old niece opens up on relationship struggles

In an interview with the Business Daily, Nana, dwelt on her background as a granddaughter to founding President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, as well as her career journey that has seen her rise to become the CEO of Kenyatta International Conference Centre.

In the candid interview, the 40-year old mother of three confessed that her biggest struggle has been getting a genuine partner since most people are only interested in her status and networks.

She had been asked to name the one thing that she had always wanted and could not achieve.


Relationships struggle

“Getting a genuine partner, I would say. I have struggled with relationships. I have had a couple of good relationships, but mostly it’s been difficult because the people have not been interested in me as a person,” she told veteran writer Jackson Biko.

She was, however, quick to point out that she did not wish to be born in a different family, saying the love from her family was enough consolation.

“But this is not supposed to elicit sympathy. I don’t say I wish I was not born in a family like this, the love that they provide is undisputed. Like I said I've got three beautiful children. I am a single mother and I am not dating or anything like that,” she added.


Nana is the daughter to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s elder sister, Jeni Wambui.
