Meet Kenneth Matiba’s little known daughters

Matiba's successful daughters

But apart from his impressive stint in politics, politics was many things; an entrepreneur, a sportsman, a mountaineer, and most importantly – family man.

The deceased politician was father of five children – three girls and two boys.

His daughters are trailblazers in the true meaning of the word – having received the best education at a time when many Kenyan women were given very limited opportunities.
