From gigantic mansions to fancy cars, billionaires seem to have it all. But why would they want to marry one wife despite being in an African setting and having access to all the money in the world? Maybe perhaps most of the billionaires have adapted the western culture, which seems to augur well with their normal daily life.
According to the book Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, the author states that;
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”
And a good wife can definitely accelerate you towards your goals. Below is a list of wives of the top wealthiest billionaires Kenya.
Aruna Chandaria is married to Manu Chandaria who is among the top filthy rich Kenyans. Manu Chandaria, who is a Kenyan businessman with an Indian descent, has accumulated wealth estimated to be $1.7 billion. He married Aruna Chandaria when he was at the age of 26, while Aruna herself was 21 years old at the time. The two love birds have two children Nael Chandaria and Priti Chandaria. Both Manu and Aruna solemnized their marriage in July 2019 marking 64 years in marriage.
