  • Businessman Manu Chandaria has a vacuum elevator in his house that has impressed netizens.

    During an interview with Betty Kyallo on Friday, the Comcraft Group founder revealed that he decided to install the machine after falling down.

    It can carry two people and unlike most common lifts, the occupants can sit down if they want to.

    Many Kenyans were also fascinated by his simple lifestyle. Unlike most billionaires, Manu is humble.

    He does not splurge on worldly pleasures. He only owns 5 pairs of suits and two jackets.

    Manu told Betty that some years back he remembered that human beings must die so it doesn't matter what you own.

    As the chairman of the Chandaria family, the 90-year-old is at the forefront of the charitable work in his family.

    His family has set up charitable trusts in more than 11 African countries to assist in their philanthropic exploits.

    He helped in setting up the Chandaria School of Business at United States International University (USIU) and the Chandaria Business Innovation and Incubation Centre at Kenyatta University (KU).
