2 Kenyans listed in the Forbes Africa’s richest 40

Posted by Administrator on November 17, 2011

Forbes magazine’s inaugural list of the 40 richest people in Africa put Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote as Africa’s richest man. Dangote with a stake in Dangote Cement and interests in flour milling and sugar refining, has a fortune of $10.1bn (£6.4bn).

The inaugural list puts South Africa’s Nicky Oppenheimer at number two with $6.5bn.

Two Kenyans Uhuru Kenyatta and Chris Kirubi appear on the list in the 26th and 31st position. Uhuru who is 50 years old has a fortune of $500 million (Sh45 billion) while Kirubi’s fortune is valued at $300million (Sh29 billion).

The magazine ignored dispersed family fortunes, such as the Chandaria family of Kenya.

Forbes said it had reached the values using stock prices for publicly-traded companies and estimates of revenues or profits for the many privately-held businesses.
