In Kenya its alot, but in the world stage, thats kids play. Apple in the quarter (oct.-dec. 2014) had a profit of US$ 18billion.
But why are they publishing their trading results in Kenya, are they opening an office here?

Assets valued at 140bn generating a profit of 1.5bn? Poor performance. Very poor 1%.

Are people’s deposits considered assets in banking?

hmmm very probabla. somebody is angling to flip over a small non-performing bank. Consolidated, First community, Dubai etc. typical Merali act, like what he is doing with Equatorial. we have a new generation of slippery businessmen

Total assets are a sum of liabilities and shareholders equity. Utakuta customer deposits on the liability side of the balance sheet

Whichever way, they arent doing fine. Its easier then to put the money (customer deposits) at equity bank and get their 2.5% interest.

Gava wants to combine Consolidated and National.

Gava ya Uhuru inataka kufanya vitu mingi Sana shida Ni cartels.

National Bank is said to be in a very precarious position, they’ve been dishing out big loans ovyo ovyo. They may need to get bailed out pretty soon like Mumias.

gava should pull the plug on national bank or sell that empty shell like obako did telcom. hii bank iwezi saidika it is the hyenas’ colony.

I could be wrong but I think deposits by people are treated as liabilities in a bank’s books…
