Donholm

at a glance

Named by a colonial Kenya land/plantation owner James Kerr Watson (3 October 1881-11 November 1955), who gave the name “Donholm” to his dairy farm in the area. The estate targeted the upcoming african middle class rising from the mid 1970’s and had decent sized bungalows having lawns each on its own compound. Several phases have been built around it, mostly having apartment blocks which are amongst the most pricey in the eastlands area. Donholm is now an eclectic neighbourhood. In this neighbourhood, you will find communities from all over Kenya, with a mixture of refugees from South Sudan, Nigeria, the DRC, Rwanda and Burundi. And then we have old white men, many of who hang on the arms of pretty young African things.
