There are now very many privately owned petrol stations in Kenya.
Yet, at some point, only multi-nationals like the defunct Esso, BP and Mobil once called the shots.

But did you know that the first Kenyan to open a petrol station was Fred Mbiyu Koinange, the father of TV host Jeff Koinange?
Well, Fred was the son of Senior Chief Koinange after whom Koinange Street is named in the Nairobi CBD.
The then 41-year-old opened, Koinange Petrol Station, Kenya’s first indigenous in Kariokor area in 1966 - the year he died.
Never mind he had been detained for seven years after the State of Emergency was declared in 1952.
Did you also know that Fred Mbiyu was also the first African Kenyan to open a car dealership?

In 1948 - when Mr Cooper was also opening the Cooper Motor Corporation (CMC Motors) in a wooden hut along Jackson Road, now Parliament Road - Fred also opened his!
In his biography, Through My African Eyes, Jeff writes very interesting stuff about his father’s amorous ways.

Did you also know that the first African-owned clothing ‘supermarket’ was Njiiris? It stocked popular brands such as Dash and was opened by Kariuki Njiiri, son of Senior Chief Njiiri after whom Njiiris School is named.
Kariuki Njirii attended Kenya Training Teacher’s College, Githunguri, Lincoln University, USA for his BA and MA, before returning home to take an Education Officer’s post in 1958.
He cemented his place in Kenyan history when he stepped down for Jomo Kenyatta, easing his ascent into the Legislative Council in 1961.
Kariuki’s American wife, Ruth Stutts Njiiri, was President Jomo Kenyatta’s private secretary.

Njiiri later served as MP for Kigumo and Assistant Minister for Local Government in 1964.
Besides founding the Kikuyu Welfare Association, Kenya Children’s Library, Kenya Education Trust and serving on the Board of Governors of Njiiris High School, Kariuki Njiiri (for that sacrifice to the future president) was granted a licence to operate the upscale, but now defunct, Njiiris, the once favourite shopping store for Kenya’s middle class!

“Onyango hii umeffii yangu kwisa kwama kwa haga… leta mwiko haraka!”

“Omera what gives , I’m chewing the curd yawa!”

“Na ukileta mwiko kuja na gaseti pia. Hii umeffii tahitaji spesel edisen ya county ile ya kurasa mia moja na mbili. This is not ordinary sit, yawa!”

This is hilarious . You know you sound a person emotionally unpredictable which makes me conclude as I did before you aren’t a man you are a WOMAN . No man can fight back words after words as you always do. Matusi inyeshe Sasa


“Omera yawa can’t I have peace! What else do you want?”

“Onyango things are bad!”

“What is?”

“Onyango there’s an obstrukson!”


“Onyango I believe a fis bone is obstrukting the pathway yawa!”

“You can’t be serious!”

“Onyango a fis bone is obstrukting the crevice yawa, I will need you to pull it out yawa!”

“I can’t touch umeffii yawa! That I will not do!”

“Onyango things are very bad hiya, either you do it or I will explode yawa!”

“Omera that I cannot do! Use the mwiko!”

“The mwiko shoved it deeper yawa, things are dire here yawa! Only human intervenson via hand extrakson will cure this one yawa!”
