Mr Munga first sold 104 million shares worth Sh1.4 billion in the open market last year as he raced to meet his self-imposed deadline of selling the stocks by August this year.

Britam made public the latest shares transaction in a notice sent to the Nairobi Securities Exchange in line with the market regulations.
