Billionaire businessman Joe Kibe has passed away today, December 2.

His death was confirmed by Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia through a social media post.

The CS mourned the Chairman of the Eminent Persons Group of Murang’a as a wise, humble and humble man.

“I have learnt with great shock and sadness the passing on of Mr. Joe Kibe. Kibe was one of the icons of Kenya’s Public Service, having serviced as PS in the early years after our independence.

His dedication to service and patriotism has been unrivaled . Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Kibe and family. He was father of Capt. Gilbert Kibe, DG, KCAA,” Macharia wrote.

He, however, did not disclose the cause of his demise.

Kibe was elected as the chair of the Council of Murang’a Eminent Persons in July last year to replace the late Charles Rubia, who died in 2019.

The group comprise billionaire and multi-millionaires from Murang’a County.

Some of its members include Peter Munga, SK Macharia, Prof Lucy Irungu, Muthoni Likimani, Nicholas Ng’ang’a, Nyamu Njoka and Bishop David Gathiga.

Apart from leading the Council, the former Water Principal Secretary served as director of multiple private companies.

He was also a real estate mogul and established some of the high-end estates such as Bahati Ridge in Thika, Kiambu County.

Also, he had an interest in agriculture and was involved in international horticulture business.

Despite being filthy rich, Kibe kept a low-profile.
