When Pro Gas was first unveiled, rumors spread fast and became almost believable that the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) company belonged to Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua. Pro Gas with its almost girlish pinkish cylinder has made its intent clear in the Kenyan market as many customers embrace it due to its affordability. The company’s writes of its cylinder:
The founder of Pro-Gas is billionaire businessman Mohammed Jaffer. The company started operations in Kenya in 2017 and has gone to establish itself as a market leader.
The owner of Pro Gas was born in Mombasa in 1948. He is the owner of Africa Gas and Oil (AGOL) which owns Proto Energy Limited under which Pro Gas is sold. The billionaire is the founder of MJ Group.
The entrepreneur has left the running of his companies to his children and now directs his energy to Jaffer Foundation Charitable Trust. His Foundation supports education projects, housing projects, access to water and medical assistance.
