<p>The former regional heads for Africa at private equity giants&nbsp;KKR&nbsp;and&nbsp;Carlyle&nbsp;are setting up an investment firm,&nbsp;Arkana Partners, to target local equity investments of up to $100 million.</p> <p>Kayode Akinola told Reuters on Wednesday that he was leaving KKR to join forces with Marlon Chigwende, who left his role as Africa chief at rival Carlyle in 2016, as private equity opportunities in Africa are often seen as too small for the buyout industry&rsquo;s titans.</p>
