Chris Kirubi, a rich business mogul who largely invested in Kenya was a father of two and had divorced his wife in 1999.

Very little is known about his family especially after the much-publicized divorce which saw him lead the rest of his life as a bachelor.

So little is known about his wife Ms Kirubi who went under immediately after they successfully parted ways with the deceased.

However, it can be revealed that as late as 2017 the lady who leads a lowkey life had already retired and is leading a low life.

However, K24 Digital has gathered some details about his family.

His first-born daughter is known as Mary Anne Wambui aged 47 years old.

Wambui is a Kenyan businesswoman and entrepreneur who runs her father’s empire and also seats on a number of boards of public and private companies.

The companies include; Sidian Bank, Haco Tiger Brands, UAP Investments Limited, International House Limited, Woof Advertising and marketing, Sheraton in Rongai and Croyden Limited.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts in International business administration and a Master of Science in management from the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom.

She once described her mother saying “a lovely lady, very low key, very hardworking and a woman who loved her kids.”

Asked about her father in an interview in 2017- she said that “ he is a mentor who grew up with nothing and today is one of Kenya’s most accomplished businessmen.”

His son Robert Kirubi works in Belgium and he is the head of Global Customer programs at DHL Services Logistics.

Robert in 2018 turned down an offer by his father when he was asked to come back to Kenya and manage some of his father’s businesses.

In one of the last interviews that the late Kirubi featured on, he said that probably he turned down the offer because he was paid well by the company in Belgium.
