  kenyatta first buildings

 Kenyatta High School (Mahiga) was established in the period before Kenya attained its independence from the British Colonial Government at Kagere area in Mahiga Location of Nyeri South district. It was among the several schools established by the local community on self help basis in response to the segregate colonial education policy which denied education to those perceived as hostile to the colonial authority. When the state of emergency was declared in the year 1952, Kagere High School which later changed name to Mahiga High School was banned and deregistered on allegations that it was        established by people perceived as sympathetic to the Mau Mau Movement and that some of its founders had direct linkages with the freedom fighters.

It was re-established in the year 1965, two years after Kenya attained its independence and the first form one class started learning in May 1966. Our current chairman of the Board of governors Mr. Nelson Muturi was one of the pioneer students in this class. When President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was approached by some local leaders and requested to allow the school to be named after him he accepted. On Sunday 30th March 1969 the school was officially opened by Honorable Mbiu Koinange M.P., Minister of State for foreign affairs. During the occasion there were about 4,000 people gathered and the name of Kenyatta High School (Mahiga) was established and confirmed by the minister among the crowd of people who were gathered.

As a community project sponsored by the African Independent church of Africa (AIPCA), the school suffered from staffing problems in the beginning. It was later assisted by Charitable Non Governmental Organizations like: The American Peace Corps, VSO (British) among others.
