    Glad to know I am not the only one mystified…I wish I had bought them when I thought they were undervalued at 2-3 Ksh a share..the plan was to accumulate between 750,000 to 1 million shares starting last year..I never implemented it.. I kick myself to this day..That would have been an easy million dollars as of close the market early this month. I really wish I knew what was driving this..this should be big news but very little analysis out there, unless I am missing something..I know of no other stock with such a rapid rise in price in the world…might be an excellent thesis topic for an MBA graduate student…

    Do you think Olympia Capital could be next to rally? What about Mumias?
