Kenyan Billionaire Who Owns Kevian Limited, a Company that Produces Afia Juice

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. I tend to agree with these words as such has been the case with Kimani Rugendo, the founder and CEO of Kevian Kenya limited.

After failing to capture of Lang'ata parliamentary seat during the 1992 election, veteran Kimani Rugendo set out to build his own business empire. His first ever product was bottled water selling under the name Mt Kenya.

The businessman soon expanded his empire to accommodate diversified products such as pick 'N' peel and the Afia ready-to-drink juices. His products are sold in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zambia.

In the year 2005, Rugendo opened up yet another plant in Thika, expanding the company's production capacity from a normal 10,000 bottles per hour to 40,000 bottles per hour. The Thika- based plant now produces 250 tonnes of products per day.

Mr. Rugendo's company has diversified its products and is now producing plain Malt, Energy malt, Lemon malt, and Orange Malt.
