He was born in the Marakwet County town of Cheptongei. Mr. Kipkorir will be 55 years old in 2023. He grew raised in a low-income family as the third of nine children. Donald considers his poverty acute because he had never worn shoes before coming to Nairobi for university studies.
He attended a village school that was struggling. His mother moved him to a better school in the village and sold Busaa to pay for his school fees. Donald remarked on Twitter that he was educated by his mother and her mother.
He had planned to become a priest and had already enrolled in the seminary, but his entrance to the University of Nairobi to study law changed his plans.

Donald decided to embark on his own road by establishing the KTK Advocates law company.
