With all that he has, Joho has had a tough upbringing. From dropping out of school to living in the ghetto and now he is one of the richest men in Kenya
But we all have that aha moment in life. For Joho it was his 6.6 million success that took him out of poverty at just 20.
He confessed he has been in the clearing and forwarding business for long and with that one deal, everything changed.
My first transaction that changed my life was when i was just 20 years old. I remember I got a clearing and forwarding job and I got a 6.6 million cheque. That is the first money that I saw and I was like this is it.
With that money, he made another smart business move and diversified his businesses and ventured into pesticide and waste management.
He got a deal with Kenya Ports Authority and went on to do pesticide and waste management for KPA for about 5 years.
Speaking to Lillian Muli on the allegations of being involved in the illegal drugs trade and trafficking, Joho rubbished the claims. He said that it has been over 10 years since the story was out, by now if he was a guilty man, he would have been in prison because that is enough time for investigation.
Ten years down the line if there was some truth some kind of action would have been taken. You can’t try to build on a narrative for ten years that has no end.
The story that Joho is a drug trafficker has been there for years and it got serious last year when he took a couple of government officials to court after alleging he is into the drugs business.
All he asks for is that people cut him some slack.
