without relevant skills, you can only invest in shopping malls to ensure your offspring gets a share of what you once had.

a black man cannot run a manufacturing facility, managing thousands of workers, meeting customer and supplier demands while complying with government regulations at the same time.

Manufacturing and large scale farming require at least 120 IQ to manage successfully. Ngumu kupata hiyo huku bonoboland

are they kenyan run? are suppliers satisfied? what about customers and employees? don’t employees in kenyan run factories smell of poverty?

His money his choice. No one owes you a job eti they should invest in a factory ndio wakupee job. Also do you know what it takes to successfully manufacture and market a product, the expertise, machinery, rawmaterials, land costs, buildings, power costs, personnel, transport, marketing, taxes, competition, theft etc etc. If you have cash, its easier to put up rental space than gamble in manufacturing. Even in Germany there are more malls than factories.

Also hii maneno ya large scale farming is not a walk in the park coz there are arable-land availability issues, land costs, machinery costs, employees, pests, diseases, drought, el nino, irrigation, theft, market for the produce and you have to be on the ground otherwise telephone farming will finish you. And FYI all arable land is already being farmed and farmers are always complaining eg the maize farmers who have to spend 3,500 to produce a bag of maize and sell the same at 4,000.

shida ya manufacturing ni unaeza amka to some stupid govt policies and your company ikufe hapo hapo. Your billions inakunywa maji in less than a week. Eg Keroche. Manufacturing in Kenya is like playing russian roullete, utakufa tu bure na stress

Wacha nieke mall ata kama ni kathonzweni, atleast im guranteed some steady supply of funds for the next 50 years.

Shida ya malls ni rents hukuwa high and the traffic cannot justify that high rent. Who is going to pay over Ksh 150 per square foot in a mall without traffic?

If you move around cities in Europe you notice that biasharas in CBDs zina kufa. They find it more attractive to move into malls which are booming.
These loaded felllows might be thinking ahead.
Pahali naishi CBD imejaa hair saloons na resturants. Wengine wamehamia malls.

If all one knows is to steal from the government I highly doubt one would have the knowhow to engage in manufacturing. What would jagathi know about manufacturing really?

Jagathi has the capital to risk in manufacturing. Manufacturing is a high risk and high reward business. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to know EVERYTHING in a manufacturing operation to own it. Sure, more knowledge is better. But in a big operation, you can afford to hire professionals and consultants to do most of the thinking. Kazi yako ni kumonitor costs na outputs tuu. Ama unafikiria mhindi anajua kuoperate his machines in industrial area?? Fuck no. But he hires engineers and pays them well to do the work. He also brings in consultants to monitor their work. Most importantly, he understands what the end product should look like and how many of those products his operation should produce in a day. The actual manufacturing is a black box system that only the technical staff and consultants understand.

Think about manufacturing the way you think about a car. You know how to use it but you don’t care what goes on below the hood. You only have a rudimentary understanding of what to check and you can easily tell if the car has an underlying issue. That’s it. You don’t need to be a mechanic to own a vehicle. You don’t need to be a mechanical engineer to own a factory but you need the money to risk and the willingness to learn the basics i.e if you buy X raw materials, then you should have about Y products from the raw materials. What happens between X and Y is the problem of your lead engineers and production staff. If the math doesn’t make sense you call in consultants and auditors to find the problem.

The problem with bonobos like you is that you understand everything in black and white. So, nikisema you don’t need to understand every step in the manufacturing process to own a factory, unaelewa you don’t need to know anything. I stated clearly that you do need to understand everything about inputs and outputs, but not the technical process of manufacturing. Lakini juu you understand everything in black and white umeelewa that you don’t need to be technically sound.
