Kimathi Rawlings is one of the four children of late former president of Ghana, Flt. Lt. (Rtd) Jerry John Rawlings and former first lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings.

The young man appears to be a very private person since very little is known about his life and he is obviously not a social media fanatic.

Even though he has always gained some form of attention owing to the fact that he was once a member of Ghana's first family, his private life has remained intact.
