UHURU KENYATTA is the richest president in Africa - Sh 150 BILLION fortune

Monday April 15, 2013 - President Uhuru Kenyatta is the richest President in Africa with estimated fortune of Sh 150 billion, Forbes Magazine has indicated.

Although it not clear on the ownership of some of the assets of the Kenyatta family, it is certain that President Uhuru is very wealthy individually. Wealthy enough to be Africa's richest President, because anyway, of the 25 individuals above him in Forbes 2011 list, none was a President.

Financial experts have placed Kenyatta's family wealth at over KSh 150 billion. Uhuru’s fortunes extend from owning vast estates of land, banking, real estate, insurance, manufacturing and five star hotels.

He also owns a number of international schools including Peponi and Brookhouse and of course the Heritage Hotels Ltd, through which they own at least 6 of the country's prime tourist hotels including Great Rift Valley Lodge in Naivasha.

Working with the above, Uhuru Kenyatta is easily Africa's richest President. His close competitor is Equatorial Guinea President, Teodoro Obiang Nguema.

Some estimates have put his wealth at around Sh 50 billion, but others term it a gross exaggeration.
