TJ We Remember: A Photo Tribute To Tom Mboya From Kumekucha
Tom Mboya was one of the most prominent personalities in Kenyan history. He was born Thomas Joseph Mboya on 15th August 1930 and was assassinated at the tender age of 39 on 5th July 1969. It is widely believed that his profile and illustrious career as a brilliant and charismatic leader, which was seen as a challenge to the then political establishment, led to his assassination.

Did you know that the same weight in silver still buys gas at the price of decades ago (25 cents a gallon). It is paper money that loses value rapidly all the time. That’s why investment experts have long-recommended portfolio diversification and that 20% or more of an investor's assets be devoted to tangible assets such as gold, silver and platinum bullion and bullion coins. This is a prudent asset diversification strategy critical in today’s uncertain world that is made possible by Monex a company that makes buying gold coins easy and convenient and has been doing so since 1967.
