Anyone with an idea on how to register and run (recurring legal requirements) a holding company in Kenya?

@mwania thank you.

I was watching a mind speak talk with Kiprono Kittony
After going through a 'flat broke' session, he formed a holding company, it has a Kenyan Address.
I was curious of this 'Holding Company' and I realized it is a risk averse strategy that allows an investor to take big risks while minimizing his individual exposure.

This Holding Company and Holding Company Advanced makes seem like a brilliant approach. It got me thinking about the local situation.
Zilch information. If its not on google it must be on wazua!
Does the Kenyan law allow?
If yes are there tax advantges?
Anyone who uses this approach can share the experience we wazua together!

Hey guys,

while reading the Annual Reports for some companies I saw in the top shareholders some Holdings companies owned by Kenyans on the list. How does one begin a holdings company? Is there a benefit to buying shares via such companies over directly with their name other than privacy? What is the ideal way to go about this Legally in Kenya? any advice is appreciated.

I know it's allowed by law in Kenya because I had clients with prime pieces of land in nairobi but under holding companies created to hold the properties and each property is held by a different company.
I am looking for more info on kenyan requirement for registering and any running requirements
