Lenana School History and Notable Alumni

Lenana School KCSE Results

Lenana School is a boys’ school that was founded in 1949 by Colonial Governor Philip Euen Mitchel naming it the Duke of York School. After its inauguration, the first students to join were hosted at the British Colonial governor’s house which was later turned into the current State House.

After two decades the school was renamed Lenana, after a Masaai spiritual leader, Laibon Lenana in 1969. The school was a bit unique from other schools as it launched Cadet training in its education program which included training courses on para-military standards.

The docket was introduced by the colonial government after the rise of Mau Mau and it was supposed to serve as basic training for conscription in the all-white Kenya Regiment. The docket was fully packed with uniforms, ammunition, a parade, and an armory. The course became mandatory for all students who are 14 years and above.

Until the closure of the program in the 1980s teachers would organize a supervised shooting competition during the school’s Founders Day which was the 28th of January. The program was closed in 1982 and all the equipment associated with the program was repossessed by the Moi government.

Some of the notable alumni of Lenana School include John Sakaja, Joseph Mucheru, Malik Obama, Pascal Tokodi, Wafula Chebukati, and other great men in Kenyan society.
