The new era of Rwathia young men incorporate Equity Bank Director Munga, Equity Bank Chief James Mwangi, extremely rich person speculation broker Jimnah Mbaru and protection financier Benson Wairegi.
Dr Bitange Ndemo, a senior Lecturer at the University of Nairobi’s Department Of Business, noticed that the best representatives in Kenya or East Africa originate from Rwathia, in spite of no logical exploration being led towards that end.
“This village arguably controls almost 20 per cent of Kenya’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and almost 40 per cent of the stock market in Kenya,” Dr Ndemo said, in a 2014 article title The Mystery of Success.
Dr Ndemo further explained this, “Their forebearers like Gerishon Kirima and Gerald Gikonyo, one of the co-founders of Rwathia Distributors, were successful in spite of the fact that they had limited education. Rwathia’s third generation is succeeding, not just here in Kenya, but in far-flung areas like the United States.”
“Equity’s Corporate Social Responsibility in
Wings to Fly, which is sponsoring students to attend some of the best universities in the world, is enough to shower blessings on its founders. So whichever way you look at this, Dr Mwangi and his teams have left an indelible mark that will never be matched by any organisation in the foreseeable future.”
