Akothee got married at 14 and had to go back to school at 24 to finish her studies. She finished her high school in 2004 when she was already a mother of three and scored a mean grade of a C+. Unfortunately she was kicked out of her first marriage since she was supposedly boring, too hardheaded and unromantic. Her husband then fell in love with another woman.
With the little money she had saved up Akothee went to a driving school and became a matatu driver. She then later on moved to Mombasa where she became a taxi driver. While on the Job she met a Swedish man who invited her back to his home country. Unfortunately as fate would have it, things didn’t work out as she had planned. The man kicked her out while she was 9 months pregnant and she had to come back to Kenya. However this time she had some money on her, enough to invest well in her taxi business.
While still going about her business as usual she met a French man who was then the French ambassador to Djibouti. This was the turning point of her life as she had hit the jackpot. The man was truly loaded and showered her with lavish gifts and colossal amounts of money. The man once gifted her with a brand new Prado on her birthday and sent her KSH 80 million to put a roof over her growing family. The French man is the father of her last born, however they are now separated.
Today she runs over 4 business which include real estate, farming, tours and transport.
