Flamboyant Businessman Chris Kirubi Dies at 80

Published

on

The Family of Businessman and industrialist Chris Kirubi confirmed his death today. His family said he died on Monday after a long battle with cancer. He was 80 years old.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr Christopher J Kirubi (1941-2021), who passed away today, Monday the 14th of June, 2021 at 1pm at his home after a long battle with cancer, fought with fortitude, grace and courage. He was surrounded by his family,” a statement from the family said.

The family said more details would be released in coming days.

In an interview with Business Daily in 2020, Kirubi opened up about his battle with cancer after images of him looking frail circulated on social media.

He said, “One thing I’ve come to discover is that in the end you’re alone. Your friends may love you, but eventually you have to deal with your sickness personally. You think about the past, the things that you could have done, the things that you have not done, and what you can do to compensate for things you ignored. It is a time of reflection. And prayers from friends do help, a lot. Being in a good hospital, with good doctors, adds a certain value to your life. I was just wondering what we can do to make sure, in a poor country like Kenya, everybody receives the best treatment possible rather than mass treatment. Because to tell you the truth, if I had been here maybe by now I would be long gone.”

 This was more than half of the figure needed for her drug.

As at now, the targeted 240 Million has been reached, thanks to the clarion call that railed everyone to baby Ayah’s support.
