The internet was once shaken after word spread that a 29- year old Kenyan businessman had treated himself,friends and family to a 40 million birthday party.
Well, Kshs 40 million?? Okay.
Since then Steve Mbogo has had his good share of controversy and his name popping on headlines for mostly wrong reasons. What many do not know is that Steve is the President of all public University in Kenya. I mean, the flamboyant SONU president one Babu Owino is under him!
He is the Patron.
Steve was once branded as a fraud and fake billionaire by the mouthy Njoki Chege. A lot has been said about his wealth being fake but infobare.com says otherwise;
“Kenya has had its fair share of fake youngest billionaires. However when it comes to Steve Mbogo the story is the real deal. Coming from humble beginnings, Steve Mbogo has risen to be one of the wealthiest men in Kenya today. Mbogo begun his journey to riches by selling laptops to his friends and school mates. 15 years done the line, he is now the owner of Capital Flow Enterprises. The company which has an average turnover of about $130 million makes him the youngest billionaire in Kenya at the age of 28. The company operates in 73 countries across 4 continents.
As if this is not enough, Mbogo is heavily invested in the real estate sector, manufacturing, Insurance, ICT and Aviation industry among others. Among his other ventures, Steve Mbogo holds the Non-executive chair of the youth aviation company Kenya and flight 540,” reports the website.
How true this is….i cannot tell. But as the old adage goes, “A man is not his wealth but family”.
With the realisation of truth in that saying, Steve who is vying for an MP seat in Starehe Constituency has lately been fond of sharing light moments with his family.
Married to KTN’s hunkiest presenter one Jamal Gaddafi’s sister, the two have two kids together the newborn just a few months old.
Rumors has it that Mbogo’s “pointee” wife is an air hostess with Qatar Airways.
