High Commissioner Bundu Pays Courtesy Call on Kenya’s  Top Industrialist :Possible Investment in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone’s High Commissioner to the Republic of Kenya, Her Excellency Madam Isatu Aminata Bundu has met with top Kenya based industrialist, Mr. Narendra Rameshchandra Raval (Guru). The Business man, popularly known as “Guru”, is the owner of Devki Group which has employed over 4,000 Kenyans, 430 Congolese and 500 Ugandans operating in their respective countries.

Narendra Rameshchandra Raval said he is working towards improving the relationship between the two countries in terms of business and development. He confirmed that he will explore business opportunities between the two countries, adding that he would also look forward to taking investors to Sierra Leone within the shortest possible time as soon as COVID-19 subsides.

He also recalled his last visit to Sierra Leone in 2019, and expressed love for the people, the current leadership and the country at large.He commended the level of peace and security Sierra Leone currently enjoys and stated that such serves as the basis and animating factor for his possible investment in the country.

It is worth noting that Mr. Guru acquired the Nalin Nail Works Group of Companies (the then Largest Steel Manufacturing Group of Kenya) in 2005 from Kenya Commercial Bank to establish the factory at Ruiru, Kenya and thus further expanded the steel capacity and product range. Today Devki Steel Mills Limited has a market share of over 50% in the country. The company is poised to grow further and expand its presence in the national and regional steel market. Under his stewardship, the Group makes exports to Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania and D.R. Congo and earns scarce foreign exchange for the country. The Group imports raw materials, consumables, spares, plant and machinery including technical designs, drawings and know-how from Asia, Europe, Australia, America, Middle East and Africa.
