Controversial Businesswoman Anne Njeri Njoroge Expresses Surprise at Kenyans Doubting Her Ability to Import Ksh17 Billion Worth of Oil”
Businesswoman Anne Njeri Njoroge has expressed astonishment at the skepticism surrounding her capacity to import oil valued at Ksh17 billion, which has been held at the port of Mombasa for over a month.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Citizen TV in a undisclosed location, the controversial entrepreneur, who has been making headlines in recent weeks, mocked those questioning the appearance of wealth.
“Nobody knows what a wealthy person looks like. Wealthy people don’t have a specific appearance. They are not self-conscious about it. Nobody knows how a wealthy person looks,” said Anne Njeri.
The enigmatic businesswoman addressed numerous questions raised by Kenyans regarding her ability to possess a substantial amount of oil.
A large section of the Kenyan population has cast doubt on her wealth, claiming that she does not appear capable of importing such a significant quantity of oil.
Some even allege that the oil belongs to a well-known Kenyan billionaire or politician, and Anne Njeri is merely a front to conceal their identity.
In the same interview, the controversial entrepreneur confirmed that her mother is unaware of her wealth, despite being aware that she is engaged in business.
“My mother doesn’t know how much money I have. She knows I am a businesswoman; that she knows. But, you know, there are things you don’t say,” she remarked.
Last week, Anne Njeri’s mother, Pauline Njoroge, was interviewed by journalists, where she admitted that she had no idea about her daughter’s substantial wealth.
Pauline revealed that, besides being unaware of her daughter’s wealth, she had not seen her in the past five years.
Anne Njeri, the alleged owner of the Ksh17 billion worth of oil held at the port of Mombasa for over a month, has been gaining notoriety in recent weeks and is expected to present herself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) offices in Nairobi this week.
