The opposition chief disclosed that he also owned shares in some companies but did not mention which ones or the value of his ownership.When pressed on what amounts to being rich, Raila avoided a straight response and said his Sh. 2 billion is not in cash. He went on: “I started my own business which is employing people in Industrial Area in Nairobi. Whatever we have done is in very good faith. We have invested in the molasses industry which is not working right now as the sugar mills are not working.”
The decision to reveal his net worth came a week after deputy president William Ruto refused to state how much he is worth in a similar interview with NTV.
