Businessman and founder of Mololine Services Limited Kibera Muchai has passed away.
His family confirmed that Muchai died on Tuesday at Nakuru Level Five Hospital, where he was receiving treatment after a short illness.
“It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Chief Kibera Muchai, who passed away today at Nakuru Level Five Hospital after a short illness,” a family member told.
After his death, taxes were levied online.
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika lamented Muchai as a prominent entrepreneur, politician and donor.
“As we mourn his death, we celebrate a man who leaves behind a rich legacy as a cunning, visionary and charitable businessman. May his soul rest in eternal peace and may God comfort the family,” wrote Senator Kihika on his Facebook page.
Muchai was a former Molo city councilor.
Molo MP Kuria Kimani lamented Kibera as a skilled entrepreneur, who made a name for himself to build a business empire from the beginning, diligently and diligently.
“I am deeply saddened by the death of Kibera Muchai. Molo and Nakuru County have lost an unselfish, prominent and influential businessman. Our prayers are with his family,” Kimani said.
Muchai was the founder of Mololine Sacco, a Matatu pioneer organization that eventually transformed public service trips in Kenya.
The businessman, who owns several other businesses in Molo, Nakuru and Nairobi, advocated wisdom in the Matatu industry and was instrumental in promoting a free payment system in Mololine.
Kibera was also a major advocate for the rights of the Matatu industry as well as internal issues affecting farmers and stakeholders in the timber industry in Molo.
Some of the programs he has strongly defended include; road improvement in Molo and rehabilitation of the sewage system in Molo town.
Muchai avoided wealth and lived a humble life despite being very rich.
