Description Born Kamau Wa Ngengi at Ng'enda village, Gatundu Division, Kiambu in 1889 to Muigai and Wambui, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta served as the first Prime Minister (1963-1964) and President (1964-1978) of Kenya. His date of birth is thought to be sometime in the early mid 1890s. In 1914, he was baptized a Christian and given the name John Peter which he changed to Johnstone. He again later changed his name to Jomo in 1938. He adopted the name of Jomo Kenyatta taking his first name from the Kikuyu word for 'burning spear' and his last name from the bead belt that he often wore.

Anthony Mwangi, Nairobi Member Since January 2015 Artist Statement In simple terms, I am a natural student of art since I was a little child. I recall small awards from various institutions since I was in class 5.
I have loved drawing all my life. For some time since I left high school, I ventured into graphic design which really helped me in day to day upkeep. Meanwhile, I would sell a painting here and there as I progressed in other avenues of Art. Photography is another passion I have cherished over the years. I have published two full color comic books in Kenya and Netherlands.
8 years ago I also got into 2D and 3D modeling and Animation. I feel this goes a long way in enhancing my artistic talents.
All in all, my deepest love is for fine art. I am happy to be a member of ImageKind Forum. I look forward to showcasing most of my work in fine art, photography and digital arts in this forum.
