"Jeff was not raised with a silver spoon" Jeff Koinange's mother clarifies

When we talk of Jeff Koinange, we see a man whose childhood was all rosy and future well secured, but that’s not it!


Jeff Koinange was born to a father, whose father, was a prominent Kikuyu chief during Kenya’s colonial period.

Therefore where Jeff falls in this lineage is, his grandfather, Koinange Wa Mbiyu was the wealthy one and probably that trickled down to the chief’s sons, including Jeff’s father, the late Fredrick Mbiyu Koinange.

However, things got worse after Jeff’s father passed on and left Jeff behind, in the hands of a single mom who raised them up in a normal family set-up.

This the aging mother revealed during Jeff’s recent event on Sunday hosted at Country Roads, Thika Greens Golf Resort, with both in attendance.


Mary Mbiu, Jeff’s 82-year old mother, took over the podium to clarify that her son was not born with a silver spoon as the world has grown to assume.

People should not associate the name Koinange with riches because Jeff was raised in a normal family set-up. I raised him like a normal child because his father died when he was still young.

Jeff’s dad, Fredrick Mbiyu Koinange was brother to Mbiyu Koinange, who was the eldest son of chief Koinange Wa Mbiyu.

Mbiyu Koinange was a Kenyan politician who served in the government and cabinet of Kenya’s first president, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, for a whooping 16 years.

Jeff’s father on the other hand, was the first Kenyan to open a car dealership but later died in the year 1966, a time when Jeff was barely 2 years of age.

Additionally, Jeff’s mother pointed to the fact that young ladies should remain content with what they have and not blindly run after a man’s wealth like is the case today.

Don’t go after the wealthy man but content and patient with whatever you have because one day you’ll make it in life.
