My Story

Lazarus Njuguna Chege was born on 13th December  1941, in Muthangari (Msongari), Nairobi. He was the Son of the Late Alexander Chege and the Late Catherine Muthoni. He was the 3rd Born of their children namely Susan Njeri, Dorothy Wanjiru, the Late John Waweru and Michael Ngugi.Lazarus was baptised 5 days after birth at St. Austin’s Msongari . He received Holy Communion and Confirmation at an early age. For most of his youth, he served as an Altar boy and was an ardent member of the Choir. azarus  started school in 1949 at Kairi Primary School until 1954, where he proceeded to Mangu Intermediate  to 1957 where he sat for C.P.E. then moved to Thika Technical School until 1960.
After completing School in 1960, he was employed at Seven Up (7UP) for 3 years then went to Kenya Breweries Limited as a Sales Representative until 1967 where he was then employed at British American Tobacco (B.A.T.) still as a Sales Representative. He thereafter commenced work in Kenya Shipping Agency as the Nairobi Area Manager until 1983 where he retired to begin business until his demise.
