US billionaire investor exits Kenya, sells 3,700 acre farm in Siaya County

Calvin Burgess, an American tycoon, is reported to have sold his multi-billion-shilling farm in Kenya after what he cited as frustration by politicians.

Calvin is reported to have sold his 3,700-acre Dominion Farms in Siaya County to a powerful Rai family, as written in a gazette notice dated January 13th, 2020. 

The billionaire blames ODM leader Raila Odinga and his political allies of sabotaging his farm despite investing billions and providing jobs to many Kenyans at the farm.

In a report by Sunday Nation, the large farm was bought by Lake Agro Company, belonging to Jasweet Singh Rai, Tejveer Singh Rai, and Onkar Singh Rai. Calvin has to settle all the debts and bills accrued to the company before the completion of the transfer. 

Dominion farms was founded 17 years ago, where they had plans of expanding to becoming the largest farm in Africa. In 2017, he wrote a 22-page report of how Odinga was sabotaging his investments after he declined to support his presidential bid and campaigns in 2007. 

But Odinga and his close political allies dismissed the allegations. In 2017, former Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo and other ODM leaders still defended Odinga from the claims.

“We know he is planning to relocate, but we want him to leave the farm machinery intact because they were bought in this country with money generated from the sweat of our people.”

“Odinga is not a beggar as Burgess is trying to portray him. We are not going to allow him to continue tainting the image of our leaders,” Midiwo said.

Published

It was a very electrifying afternoon as we mentored our social media followers on how to build positive and remarkable relationships.

We touched on various life issues including how to laugh with a confident and deliberate abandonment, how to build extraordinarily positive relationships in families, workplaces, with God and in our social lives.

We also spared a cool 30 minutes to point at plot beacons for our customers, showing them how trees at this gated community are flourishing plus showing customers how Optiven has done the drainages.

Oh! We even had great fun crawling through one of the drainage culvert, which easily accommodated Optiven Team Leader as he easily crept to the other end. You can catch up with the Facebook Live here: (https://web.facebook.com/watch/?v=776150606288508&extid=GOZRywQJbqSrzSDM)

You can also catch up with the entire episode on You Tube right here: https://youtu.be/apZ14dvBg_g

What’s more, we prayed and prophesied for more customers to start building their dream homes in this gated community; to live victorious, joyfully and peacefully, in this extraordinary project that is located at the heart on Kitengela in Nairobi Metropolis.

If you want to join this remarkable and amazing project or to refer someone, just get in touch with us today. (Every person who refers someone will be mentioned on our next show)
