Mr. Yor first came to public limelight when he posted a video of himself lying on a bed splattered with $1 million (Ksh.100 million) which he claimed was a donation to charity.

In the now viral video where Mr. Yor referred to himself as one of ‘Africa’s youngest billionaires’, he also alleged to have previously donated $5 million (Ksh.500 million) to the Kenya Red Cross and the South Sudan Red Cross, adding that he had made other million-dollar donations to churches in Juba and Nairobi.

When questioned about the source of his immense wealth in an exclusive interview with Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange last month, a seemingly cagey Mr. Yor said “I got my wealth from my Lord Jesus Christ.”

“My Lord Jesus Christ blessed me; I fly on private jets… I live in Presidential suites… I am blessed,” said the 30-year old during the interview.
