The office of Governor-General of Kenya was created during the period when Kenya was a constitutional monarchy from 1963 to 1964 and abolished after Kenya became a republic. During this period, Malcolm John MacDonald, who was the last Governor of Kenya, continued his term as Governor-General following the transition of the state of Kenya towards independence. The Prime Minister was Jomo Kenyatta, who became President the year after independence, replacing Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.
