Kenya Atlanta based Businessman David Karangu met President Uhuru Kenyatta at New York. The President is attending the 69th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Karangu who was educated in Kenya before moving back to the U.S is one of the success stories of someone of Kenyan roots who has made it in the business World from the bottom and in U.S.

When he attended WPI in Boston region David would tell those who attended the forum how he got started in business, “I got started when I was 17yrs when I came to this country. People who knew me then in Baltimore will tell you that I used to walk around saying, ‘I will be a millionaire before I'm 30 years.’ They would say, ‘That Karangu kid is crazy!’” The crazy kid would become a millionaire and by age 40 had made enough money that he retired and toured the World with his G5 private jet.

Karangu asked, “What makes you a good businessman?” would reply, “Discipline. I work every week 70 to 80 hours and not because I have to but because I want to. I take my business extremely seriously. When it comes to business I am very strict. I do not hire people because they are my friends. I have always protected my reputation and my integrity. If I do something to hurt my business, I feel a responsibility to the Kenya community and black community of this country.”

Currently David Karangu who had sold his previous business of car dealerships (Mercedes, BMW and others) has since bought a Chevrolet and a Mazda dealerships in Atlanta region. He leaves in Atlanta with his family.
