NANA GECAGA BIOGRAPHY
She was born in Kenya in March 1978 to Jeni Wambui, a daughter to Jomo Kenyatta, the first president of Kenya (1964–1978). Nana is a niece to Uhuru Kenyatta
KICC managing director Nana Gecaga says she would have been an Olympic achiever were it not for alcoholism while in university.
Speaking to Kiss FM’s Adelle Onyango, she said she dreamt of becoming an athlete but her hopes were shut down before they materialised.
“The person you see here today has had many lives before who I am today. My passion was actually sports. I was a very big athlete back in the day, and I actually qualified for the ’96 Olympics.
“I used to love, soccer, football and basketball. At the same time, I also wanted to be a game changer and help people, because if you are in a position where you can help, just help because it doesn’t cost you anything.”
my first year at the university in America was very rocky, and that is where my everything fell apart. I was an addict of alcohol but I was able to go to rehab and from there, it’s been 19 years without drinking.”
“It definitely builds character because it takes a lot of strength to acknowledge that you have a problem, whatever it is. Getting out of it is something I am happy about because most people do not manage.”

is nana gecaga married ? President Uhuru Kenyatta’s niece Nana Gecaga has opened up on her love life with a revelation that she is yet to meet a man who loves her genuinely at 40 years.
In a candid interview with Business Daily, Nana dwelt on her career journey that has seen her climbing up the corporate ladder to become the CEO of Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).
She also talked about her privileged background as the granddaughter to the founding father the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
But despite all these privileges, Nana has revealed that getting a genuine partner has been her biggest struggle in life, since most men are only interested in her status and networks.
“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 was however quick to point out that that said, she wouldn’t have wanted to be born in a different family.
“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’m a single mother and I’m not dating or anything like that” she said.
