Esther Njihia:Nilipoteza Ksh.40 Million in 1 Month , Now I Hawk ‘Uji Power’

Formerly a millionaire and accomplished businesswoman, Esther Njihia from Nakuru shared her startling journey from riches to rags, recounting how she found herself hawking porridge on the streets within the span of a month.

During a candid interview, Esther reminisced about her days conducting business with some of the most influential figures in the country. She disclosed her ventures in importing vehicles, furniture, photocopier machines, and building materials, even boasting about selling a phone to the late President Daniel arap Moi at one point in the early 2000s.

With lucrative returns from her import-export ventures, Esther flourished as a prominent millionaire in Nakuru. Accumulating substantial wealth in her accounts, she decided it was time to expand her business empire to Nairobi. To fund her ambitious move, Esther sold her Nakuru home to acquire a luxurious mansion worth Ksh. 40 million in the capital city. However, her elation was short-lived as it transpired that the property was co-owned by five individuals, resulting in a devastating loss of Ksh. 40 million.

Adding insult to injury, a female acquaintance introduced Esther to a promising investment opportunity, assuring her that her funds would triple over time. Trusting in this venture, Esther invested Ksh. 11.4 million, only to find herself empty-handed as the promised returns never materialized.

In the blink of an eye, Esther found herself plummeting from prosperity to poverty. Within just one month, her once-flourishing financial empire crumbled, leaving her destitute and clinging onto hope that her investments would yield fruit. Yet, as time passed, no returns arrived, forcing Esther to relinquish her former status and adopt the life of an ordinary hustler. Now, she traverses the streets, selling porridge, a poignant testament to her swift and dramatic fall from grace.
