” I started working at a very early age…my first transaction that changed my life, I was about 20 years old…and I remember I got a clearing and forwarding job and made a Ksh.6.6m cheque ,” he said.

“That is the first amount that I saw and I said this is it. After that, I slowly grew my business and diversified,” Joho narrated to.

In 1997, he won a 5-year contract to do pesticide control and waste management for Kenya Ports Authority (KPA).

In 2016, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) closed down two container freight stations associated with Joho.

In a statement, the taxman explained that facilities were abusing procedures, thus threatening the fight against counterfeits in the country.

The businesses were later re-opened after he made amends with the president.

Joho has been seen living a lavish life and hanging out with young celebrities in music industry.
