On behalf of the Board and management of Equity Group Holdings, we join other Kenyans in sending you our deep condolences following on the passing on of Dr. Chris Kirubi. Dr. Kirubi will many years for the legacy he has left behind. He distinguished himself from an early age as a determined person, an industrialist who believes that everything is possible for those who believe in the power of their dreams.
Dr. Kirubi was highly accomplished and demonstrated his commitment for touching the lives of others by offering them opportunities to accomplish their own dreams. He was renowned for his passion for motivational encouragement and mentorship for young people and entrepreneurs to focus on positive attitude, resilience, optimism and most importantly, the culture of hard work.
These attributes will remain his greatest legacy for society. He openly spoke about his humble beginnings and how he lifted himself out of poverty to become one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the region.
The cruel hand of death has robbed Kenya and the word an iconic leader, businessman and role model for hard work, resilience, focus and determination. We thank God for the time he gave Dr. Kirubi to contribute to the welfare of mankind, and to leave behind a legacy for many to emulate.
We know that this is a difficult time for his family, relatives and friends. To his children Robert and Maryann and his grandchildren we pray that the almighty God gives you the strength to go through this period, and the grace to celebrate the time that God gave you to share with your beloved father and grandfather.
May almighty God rest his soul in eternal peace.
Dr. James Mwangi, CBS Group Managing Director & CEO
