However, following the demise of his father, he has become a centre of attention especially on social media primarily for two reasons: his presence at the vigil organised by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in honour of his father and his striking personality which is manifested in his accent, composure and overall exposure.

Kimathi Rawlings was born to Rawlings and Konadu Agyemang in the 1980s in Accra, Ghana.

He was named by his father after a Kenyan freedom fighter called Dedan Kimathi who lived and defended the rights of his people and consistently questioned the integrity of his leaders. He is the last born of his four siblings: Zanetor Agyemang Rawlings (MP), Yaa Asantewaa Rawlings and Amina Rawlings.Kimathi Rawlings is currently the International Negotiator at Eni in the Milan Area in Italy.

As the only male child of the former president who ruled the country for almost 20 years, the burden of proving to be the only true heir per some African cultural settings is quite grave.
