The business tycoon, who replaced the former head of the university. Prof. Shem Wandiga, stated that his income would be given to needy students at the institution as a way of helping them.

Naval further noted that his companies which include Devki Steel Mills Limited, National Cement Company Limited (Simba Cement), Maisha Mabati Mills Ltd among others, would conduct business with the university for free.

The 55-year-old aside from the steel making industry, has other five establishments in various sectors with a major one being in aviation.

Naval pledges to donate half his net-worth to the poor

This will be the second time he is having such a huge donation in regards to bettering lives of other people.

In 2017, the business mogul promised to donate half of his net-worth to the poor through education, health and social projects.

His net-worth had been revealed in 2015 when he was placed in the list of the richest people in Africa by Forbes, with a net-worth of Sh41.2 billion.

The billionaire had recently made the news when he rejected an offer from Africa’s wealthiest man, Aliko Dangote, in regards to buying out his steel making company.
