Why Aren’t Kenyan Innovators Making Money From Their Creations?

If Daniel Njuguna were to convert every one of his innovative ideas into businesses, he would certainly be a rich man.

The 25-year-old’s inventions include a home security system, a radio station that broadcasts within a 200-metre radius, an automatic clothesline, a manual handwashing machine, and more recently, an animal feed maker, a chicken plucker and a drone.

In addition, he can operate the electric switches at home using his mobile phone.

However, it is only from the animal feed maker that he is earning money.
