By now, you all know that the President’s oldest son, Jomo Kenyatta is reported to have tied the knot with his fiancee.
The question on everyone’s mind is, who is this mysterious damsel who has stolen the heart of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s son?
It turns out the girl Achola Fiona Ngobi is a Musoga and her parents fled Uganda in 1985.
Ms. Acholla Fiona Ngobi is the daughter of Ms. Ruth Theddesia Ngobi sister to Defense Minister Raychelle Omamo. Her father is Mr. Ngobi, a Ugandan lawyer who served in Uganda’s intelligence services and fled to Kenya after the 1985 coup.
Mr. Ngobi went on to practice law in Nairobi. It was rumored he was helped by Dr Koinange-a musoga lady married to then Director of Medical services and later Treasury PS, Dr. Karuga Koinange, and a sister to one of Ngobi’s mentors.
And, Oh, yes Ngobi’s wedding to Theddesia Omamo, whose father was then the cabinet minister in Moi’s regime was a flashy affair.
Sadly the marriage fell apart. And of the last images seen of Mr. Ngobi was bed ridden in Karen hospital, the hospital was being officially opened by President Kibaki-his personal doctor, Dr. Gikonyo owns it.
So Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta’s son, Joma is marrying a Ugandan from the Busoga ethnic group, albeit born in Kenya.
Fiona’s father is a Mwise Ngobi by Clan which makes her one too. This means she like the Princes of Busoga has origins in Bunyoro.So does her husband now Jomo Kenyatta whose Grandfather Jomo Kenyatta is said to be the son of Bunyoro most famous king, Omukama Kabalega.
The Ngobi’s are the five Basoga princes who can become king of Busoga, they are descendants of the 5 princes of Bunyoro who were sent by their father to conquer the lands across the Lake Kyoga but they instead chose to stay and rule the lands they found.
To date, the Kingdom is ruled by the 5 princes who at the death of the reigning king, seat with 6 others to select the next king of Busoga.
One musoga told us, this is evidence that everything Busoga exports is wonderful, then another one said that Jomo will finally get to taste Rolex and chapati made by a Musoga.
