  • Kenyan business mogul Humphrey Kariuki has won a lucrative Ksh797 million deal with United Nations (UN).

    Kariuki’s firm Dalbit Petroleum will be supplying jet fuel to United Nations’ bases in northern Uganda and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

    The firm’s subsidiary in Juba, Sudan won two tenders to fuel the World Food Programme’s (WFP’s) planes at Gulu Airport and Goma International Airport in DRC.

    WFP provides emergency assistance to people displaced by fighting in the DRC.

    The UN agency jet oil supply deal for the Gulu base is estimated at $6.8 million (Ksh685.85 million), while that for Goma is valued at $1.1 million (Ksh110.95 million).

    Kariuki’s business empire includes The Hub shopping mall in Karen, alcohol maker Africa Spirits Limited (ASL) and UK-registered power developer Great Lakes Africa Energy (GLAE).

    Kariuki’s jet fuel deal with WFP is the latest of his extensive portfolio that also includes a Ksh40 billion deal between GLAE and the Mozambique government to generate electricity using natural gas.

    Dalbit International South Sudan business manager John Paul Ogondi stated: “We are excited that Dalbit has secured the contract to supply WFP in Gulu and Goma and this works well with our commitment to fuelling regional growth across the social and economic development fronts”.

    The firm said it has built a depot with a capacity of 720,000 litres of jet oil at Gulu, a town located some 340 kilometres from Kampala.

    “In such remote areas, Dalbit is deploying tailor-made solutions including customised product delivery options to enable WFP to meet its humanitarian mandate efficiently and cost-effectively,” Ogondi added.
