Cost Of The Units

According to the Iguta homes website, the homes are going for between Sh40 million and 44 million. This means with full occupancy, the project will rake in Kabogo’s pockets over 2.5 billion shillings.

In March 2021, Kabogo invited his long term buddy ex-President Uhuru Kenyatta for a tour of the million-dollar project located near Evergreen Park and Paradise Lost.

The tour of the president to the project raised speculations in the internet but an insider of the president came out to clarify that it was just a friendly meeting.

“They have been friends for a very long time and sometimes friends meet to talk about all manner of stuff. There is no official report because sometimes Kenyans must accept the fact that the president also has friends, who he can consult,” the insider said.

Booming Business

In a recent interview with one of the dailies, Kabogo revealed that the business of building and selling affordable houses was booming and on its peak in Kenya.

He compared the investment to the used car importation business in the early 1980s and 1990s which he claimed to have participated in when he was still based in the coastal city of Mombasa.

He said that he would import over 40 used cars from Japan every month, a business that made him join the millionaire club at an early age.

  1. i sometimes feel very bad when I see how politicians enrich themselves with public money. This guy became so rich after just one term as governor of Kiambu. Only God will punish these people. Now we are seeing him taking his long time friend – Uhuru – ‘The president’ to celebrate investment from ill gotten wealth.

    • Julius, Kabogo has explained how he became a millionaire. Importing and selling cars together with Forex. Most of these guys are in forex and they are raking millions when you and me are sleeping. he may have topped up from his position, but the Kabogo i have known is a self made man.

    • Bwana Julius, Kabogo was very rich before even becoming the governor of Kiambu County.
      I was in jkuat during her tenure as juja MP

  2. His family owns almost 300 acres of land around Iguta (which is within Runda vicinity. They have sold to other developers land there (its in Runda what do you expect the prices to be). His grandfather was a collaborator during colonization so he got alot if land from the whiteman. This guy inherited Billions, its not all public money
