Julius Mwale Family

Mwale rose in Lunza village in Butere, Kakamega County. His parents were businesspeople. So automatically enacted the mantle to him. However, Mwale’s parents passed on when he was still young. He is married to Kaila Ek Mwale. The marriage took place in New York in 2008.

Julius Mwale was born in mid-1976 and is currently 46 years old in August 2022

Julius Mwale Education

Mwale started his education at a local Primary School in Lunza village and later joined Mukumu Boys Secondary School before entering college to pursue a diploma in telecommunications engineering. Julius believes technology has a broader market than any other experienced career.

Later he joined the Kenyan Air force, majoring in technology analysis and internet infrastructure. However, he was mired in a tussle with some individuals over academic property issues, which forced him to exit the country. While in the US, he explored electrical engineering at Columbia University.

Julius Mwale Employment

He was employed initially at the Kenya Air force as a telecommunications architect but fled through Uganda and Zimbabwe before pursuing asylum in the US. The mogul is behind the multi-billion Mwale Medical & Technology City based in Butere, Kakamega.

He broke the glass ceiling by pioneering biometric technology and combining it with two-factor authentication as a secure way for online banking systems.

Julius Mwale New York City Asylum

Mwale first recompensed in Uganda but was paranoid over his safety, which forced him to flee to Zimbabwe and later to the US in mid-2001. For the initial year, Mwale had an ambition for a breakthrough in technology but encountered a tough life, and it dawned on him that achieving his wishes would be an extremely slippery climb.

He compromised on a homeless shelter that was a budget for low-class people, although he desired to have asylum. Mwale in an interview on YouTube said, “A Homeless shelter is central to the people coming from jail; you meet individuals that are not mainstream people in the community, but my focus was to work on my technology, and the atmosphere was not so important.” 

Sadly, his laptop, a priceless gem containing bulky research data, was stolen. As a result, Mwale courageously had to utilize the public library even though he was confined to using the computers for an average of 30 minutes. The culture shock further pricked the troubled life that he experienced. The factors included a different language, climate, and food.

Julius Mwale Launch of SBA Technology

Mwale worked and joined Columbia University to study electrical engineering, although his main priority was to use this opportunity to create complex connections. 

Eventually, he was triumphant and launched SBA Technology, a company for which he was the president and head of the strategy.

The company pioneered a wave-based biometric system in New York, an unusual locality for a technology firm. Via this company, Mwale earned whooping 2 million US dollars and employed engineers across the globe.

 The company had 60 employees by 2003. It was among the first reputable customers that procured its services was the Bank of New York.

In 2004, SBA’s investment got a mega growth that would skyrocket it to unprecedented tiers when two-factor authentication legislation was passed and later effected in 2006.

The biometrics acquisition paid off handsomely, then plowed the funds into the Mwale Medical and Technology City acquisition.
