By now we are all aware that ben Kang’ang’i was fingered by Anerlisa Muigai as the reason why she is 19.9 million shillings in debt. She claims she was finessed by Ben and ended up taking the loan on his behalf only for her to end up stuck holding the bag.
Ben hasn’t taken the accusations lightly and he sued her for defamation saying his business was affected by her allegations.
So just who is this Ben Kang’ang’i character? A precious little has been known about him until now. Check out some of the facts we managed to scrounge up about the young lad:
He came up from absolute poverty
Ben hoisted himself up from a very humble start in life that would have had him living in poverty for the entirety of his existence on this earth.
He claims his business earns him an annual revenue of 100 mill
In his lawsuit against Anerlisa Muigai, he has asserted that he is a businessman with varying business interests that see him net a profit of 100 million shillings per annum. The businesses include a luxury car lot, an interior design company among others.
This is not his first run-in with Anerlisa Muigai
He had hitherto run afoul of Anerlisa and her family back in 2015 when he wrote,
“ON CHRISTMAS DAY 2015, I WAS CALLED BY A CID OFFICER FROM NAIROBI WHO INFORMED ME ABOUT A COMPLAINT LODGED AT THE POLICE ALLEGING THAT I WAS INVOLVED IN A FRAUDULENT SCHEME THAT SWINDLED KEROCHE BREWERIES LIMITED OF KSHS. 20MILLION. I WAS INFORMED THAT THE COMPLAINT WAS LODGED BY THE DEFENDANT’S FATHER JOSEPH KARANJA.”
He hasn’t spoken to Anerlisa Muigai since 2015
If you had been arrested at the behest of someone’s family, you too wouldnae be keen on spending time with them.
He was linked to Lillian Muli
They have since come out to clarify that they are just friends.
