Stephen Brooks Director at Homa Lime Co. Ltd./Mazao Yetu Ltd.


I was born and raised in Kenya. I moved to England after school and worked in the Insurance Industry as a Broker in Lloyds. Four years later I moved to South Africa working for two Broking Houses in Cape Town, before I started my own Insurance Brokerage. In the late nineties, I sold the business and moved back to Kenya to work in our family business with my father and brother, which was started my grandfather in 1928. Our Core business is the mining and manufacturing of Lime Products. Since the early 60’s we have been growing Sugar Cane on our land alongside a Dairy and Beef Cattle herd. We also have a forestry section to help sustain our need for woodfuel in the Lime business. I am a Director of the Kenya Association of Manufacturers and represent them on the Board of the Kenya Urban Roads Authority. I am a father of 4 daughters and a grandfather to two grandsons!
