Njeri Rionge

This Kenyan millionaire gained her first fortune as co-founder of Wananchi Online, an Internet service provider that morphed into East Africa’s prominent broadband, cable and internet-based phone company. An American company bought a 50 percent stake in the successful company for $26 million in 2011. Now, Rionge spends her days running Ignite Consulting, a thriving Nairobi-based business consultancy.
