Kenyans Reacts After Africa's Richest Man Attends Ruto's Inauguration

Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa, attended William Ruto's inauguration on Tuesday, September 13, along with presidents, chiefs of state, and other dignitaries at the Kasarani Stadium.

In a smart black suit, white shirt, and red tie, Dangote arrived at the stadium in the middle of the morning and took a seat behind Kenya's Chief Justice Martha Koome.

Various dignitaries, largely VIPs from other nations, including a delegation from the United States, were present at the event's dais with him.

Dangote is reportedly the 67th richest person in the world, with a net worth estimated at USD12.7 billion (Ksh1.5 trillion) by Forbes Magazine.

His company was based in Nigeria, a country in West Africa, and it mostly worked in the construction sector.

In 2018, the millionaire admitted to renowned Kenyan journalist Jeff Koinange that massive corruption in the nation has discouraged him from moving forward with his investment plan.

"Alhaji responded, "Jeff, there are people in that land (Kenya) who put greed and personal interest ahead of national interest," when I asked him when he was returning to the country.

That Kenya would be more corrupt than Nigeria surprised me "Dangote was quoted by Koinange on his Hot 96 morning show.
