Uhuru Kenyatta has moved to his new home in Narok county, where the former Head of State is said to own a large ranch next to the Maasai Mara – a place he will be spending most of his time after leaving office.
According to multiple sources, Mr. Kenyatta’s new home which has been under construction in Transmara is complete and the former first family has already moved into the premises.
The 1,000-acre ranch overlooking the Maasai Mara National park is located in Oloolmongi, Longorian Ward, and was bought from Olerien and Kengani group in 2020.
Uhuru Kenyatta is also setting up a tourist lodge next to his new home as he focuses on private businesses after leaving office.
The choice of Narok as his retirement home is not a surprise, given the deep ties between the Kenyatta family and the Maasai community.
Uhuru’s great-grandfather is said to have had a Maasai wife who gave birth to Mungai, the father of Kenya’s first President Jomo Kenyatta.
