Following the election of Donald Trump as the president of US Kenyans on Twitter have been drawing parallels and calling on Chris Kurubi to also run for office.

But the business magnate rubbished the call during a two day investor forum dubbed Angel Fair Africa forum.

He said: “You can’t be an expert both in business and in politics; Trump is a good example of that I haven’t seen him do one single political thing. We can only wait and see what he does, but if he runs the country how he runs his companies avoiding taxes so society can benefit then it will be difficult. Politics is a calling while business is a skill. We need committed leaders but everyone should occupy their space.”

The business mogul also invited the world to invest in Africa, arguing that the returns on investment far outweigh those in other markets.

“It is laughable that foreign investors consider Africa high risk, they make 2-4 % return on investment while in Africa we are making 30-40 %. African entrepreneurs are being recognized the world over and I am actively investing in start ups; offering both funding and mentorship.”
