Businesswoman surrounded by much controversy, Mrs. Anne Njeri Njoroge, has confirmed that indeed her mother is unaware of her true wealth.
Last week, Mrs. Pauline Wanjiru Njoroge expressed her shock after her daughter was linked to the seizure of Ksh17 billion worth of oil at the port of Mombasa, stating that for over a month, she had no knowledge of her daughter’s substantial wealth.
Speaking in an undisclosed location during an interview with Citizen TV, Anne Njeri confirmed her mother’s claims but emphasized that her mother knows she is a businesswoman.
“My mother doesn’t know how much money I have; she knows I am a businesswoman, she knows that,” she said.
The 55-year-old businesswoman pointed out that not everything should be revealed.
In a recent interview with the Nation, Mrs. Pauline Wanjiru revealed that her daughter had not visited her in the past six years. She disclosed that their last conversation, approximately four months ago, was over the phone.
“We usually talk on the phone when necessary; I have been asking her to visit someday. The last time she was here was over five years ago, almost six now. She tells me she has been busy, and I stopped asking her when she will come to visit,” Wanjiru told the Nation.
She spoke from her home in Kianjege, Kiambu County.
“I would like to meet my daughter, the one you are asking me about,” she said.
The widow revealed that her daughter dropped out of school in her first year of high school and noted that she is unaware of the actual work she does nowadays.
However, she made it clear that the businesswoman has been financially assisting her regularly whenever she needs help.
“She helps when she can, and I have nothing personal against her. It’s her money, and I don’t even know if she’s rich or not. All I know is that she tells me she does business in Dubai and Kenya, but I can’t exactly say what kind of work she does,” Wanjiru said.
