Re-known businessman Chris Kirubi has finally been laid to rest at his 600 hectares rural Bendor Estate farm home in Gatanga Sub-county, Muranga County.
The Ceremony was held earlier today, and was attended by family friends, business associates and government officials including Cabinet Secretaries James Macharia and Joe Mucheru.
During the ceremony, his eldest daughter Mary-Ann Kirubi, committed to establish a Chris Kirubi Foundation in honor of her father.
“Dad, Robert and I will honour your legacy and set up the Chris Kirubi Foundation that will honor the work and values that you were so truly passionate about. He had a vision for me. To be worldly, to be fearless of any culture, any language, any persons… and for me to be bold,” said Mary-Ann.
Mary further divulged that the foundation will support in terms of Education and Mentorship, Health (Diabetes and Cancer), Technology (Innovations) and Agriculture sectors.
She added that President Uhuru Kenyatta had been made aware of the foundation and he is fully in support.
“His Excellency did pass by the house and I talked with him and we talked about this foundation. I think I sold the idea well to the president.,” she added “I promise to do my best and when I’m stuck I will seek those in this gathering. Your legacy will never be forgotten. I love you daddy,” said Mary-Ann.
This comes after the family had on Friday held a requiem service for the departed billionaire at the Faith Evangelistic Ministries Church in Karen.
The late Kirubi passed away on Monday at 1pm after battling cancer since 2016.
