Five hottest Kenyan politicians' daughters

Most men wouldn’t mind marrying up, and there is no better catch than a politician’s eligible daughter. There are many perks that come with it: proximity to power and moneyed family networks, besides being cushioned from the vagaries of everyday life.

Then there is the privilege and star power of having proved your worth to have their hand in marriage. What is more, the politician’s daughter is likely to be well-educated, exposed, well-travelled and without small time financial problems that dog chicks in kawaida hoods.

When the wedding finally comes, it’s likely to attract the who’s who; from the president to the entire Cabinet and other nabobs in government, in addition to the usual corporate types flocking to be closer to the powers that be.

Remember the wedding of Lupita Nyong’o’s younger sister, Esperanza Nyong’o in 2015?

It was at the Great Rift Valley Lodge in Naivasha, where she wedded Tanzanian fiancé Dadi Masesaat. It was a 300-guest, cards-only affair. The ceremony began at 3pm, with the reception taking place three hours later.

Only accredited professional photographers could take pictures. Lodge staff had their phones confiscated and safely kept away to avoid leaking photos of the ceremony.

Indeed, a politician’s daughter has the family’s fame and fortune at her disposal.

For the single ambitious Kenyan men, here are some political maiden who can turn around your lives:

Lupita Nyong’o

The Oscar award-winning actress is Kenya’s best celluloid export. The second daughter of Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang Nyong’o earns major bucks, having appeared in highly rated Hollywood films like 12 Years a Slave, Non-Stop, Queen of Katwe, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Black Panther and The Jungle Book.

Just to get a glimpse into her life, consider that Non-Stop, in which she played a flight attendant alongside Liam Neeson, is a $30 million (Sh3 billion) action-packed film.

Lupita, who is said to be worth Sh800 million according to America’s Celebrity Net Worth, has also graced the covers of prestigious magazines such as Vogue, People, Elle, Marie Claire, Essence and Glamour.

The alumnus of Nairobi’s Rusinga School and Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA, also attended the Yale School of Drama and follows the trend of the Nyongos in education.

She speaks Spanish, Luo, English and Kiswahili. Apart from acting, Lupita is also a filmmaker and in 2009, she was honoured for directing, editing and producing In My Genes, a documentary which followed the stories of Kenyans living with albinism.

Lupita keeps her love life under wraps, and while she has previously been linked to American actor Jared Leto, Somali-Canadian rapper K’Naan (Keinan Abdi Warsame) and was rumoured to be dating GQ Style fashion editor, Mobolaji Dawodu, according to Daily Mail.

Ngina Kenyatta

The only daughter of President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta first made her public appearance in 2013, when her father became Head of State following the 2013 General Election.

She is known for her laid-back fashion sense, which dispenses with dresses as she is more at home in jeans and shirts. She loves big machines with the Land Rover Discovery being the ride she’s ...
