Mwalimu King’ang’i had some very kind words to say about billionaire businessman Chris Kirubi. Mwalimu revealed that he had read an article where Chris spoke about the lessons he had learnt during his fight with cancer.
King’ang’i told to Maina about Mr. Kirubi,
He has inspired me. Kirubi realised that everything is vanity, that without God, he wouldn’t be here. That is the beginning of wisdom. At 79 years he wants to build his dream house. Can you believe that?
While he was sick, he realised that God was most powerful. He has also vowed to give his all for healthcare in Kenya. He is wealthy and that is why it was easy for him to access quality healthcare but he wants that to change for ordinary Kenyans.
In a previous interview with the Star last year, Kirubi narrated his experience with the dreaded disease, saying that it had been discovered by mistake.
After various medical tests here in Kenya, Kirubi then flew to Boston in the US where doctors ran further checks and started treatment.
Despite the challenges, the businessman never lost hope. He believed in God and the doctors who were treating him.
Once he recovered, doctors discharged him and the business mogul flew back home where he has continued with the treatment at home. Because his immunity is low, visitors are restricted.
“It has been a traumatic journey full of challenges. I encourage anyone fighting cancer not to lose hope. Pray but also seek treatment,” he added.
