“It is with profound shock and sadness that we have learnt of the demise of Mr John Kagema Mwangi of Enashipai Resort & Spa located in Naivasha.

As a leafing indigenous investor in the hospitality industry, he was instrumental in the elevation of Naivasha as a leading destination for business conference and leisure.

His dedication and commitment to detail was unmatched, making Enashipai a favourable destination for high profile meetings.

We join family and friends in mourning the demise of a great Kenyan, who has left mark in Nakuru County and Kenya at large.” he wrote.

It was under his leadership at Equity Building Society that the Equity Bank came to be, back in 1986.
