Brian Mutembei is the man behind the Kenyan firm, Indo Power Solutions, that promised to pay the Tanzanian government Ksh18 billion for cashew nuts.¬†
The money was to be wired in three days in a deal signed in February 2019 to buy 100,000 tonnes of cashew nuts from Tanzania.¬†
The deal was however cancelled after the firm failed to raise the required amount of money.¬†
Mutembei is a flamboyant businessman who is well known in political circles.¬†
During the 2017 campaigns, Mutembei was known for his generous donations and grand lifestyle.¬†
He would travel in Choppers or in a convoy of high-end vehicles.¬†
He was mostly flown by Captain Apollo Malowa the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter that crashed into Lake Nakuru in 2017.
One of the greatest beneficiaries of Mutembei’s generosity is Meru MCA Elias Murega.
Mutembei was a frequent visitor to the MCA‚Äôs youth projects such as football tournaments and workshops for upcoming local artists.
Brian was also part of the star-studded ceremony during the graduation of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko‚Äôs daughter, Saumu, at her father‚Äôs estate in Machakos County two years ago.¬†
One of the dailies reported that Mutembei gifted her with Ksh 250,000.
