Billionaire industrialist Chris Kirubi is undoubtedly one of the wealthiest Kenyans. His business interests include major sectors like media, real estate, manufacturing and banking. Throughout his entrepreneurship journey, Chris has been a source of motivation for many upcoming business people. However, Kirubi’s has been involved in numerous controversies most noticeable being the downfall of Uchumi supermarket while he was at the helm.
Over the past few years, Kirubi has been battling colon cancer that led him to seek treatment in the United States. Ever since jetting back into the country, the mogul has been involved with his businesses and hosting senior figures paying him courtesy visits. Kirubi’s demise should act as a wake up call for the government to reconsider its stance on the battle against cancer.
Every year, the country keeps losing high profile figures to this disease and the government is not showing any signs of tackling the issue.
Kirubi’s legacy will always be a reminder that anyone can rise from the bottom to the top. His vast business empire under his centum groups will continue to shine his towering image for years to come.
