Billionaire Chris Kirubi who was flown for treatment to the US in November last year appears to be responding well to treatment – and now venturing out.
A photo shared on social media, the first since he started treatment, shows the business mogul looking frail and weak but jovial.
In the photo Kirubi, wearing a red cap and an oversize jacket, is seen embracing the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry national chairman Kiprono Kitony, who is also the chairman of Radio Africa Group.
The silence from his family and business associates since November has raised concerns about his health. He had been treated at a Kenyan hospital for two weeks before leaving the country.
Many Kenyans have taken to social media to wish the flamboyant businessman quick recovery.
His illness was first reported to staff at Centum Investments, a publicly listed firm for which serves as chairman and is majority shareholder.
Centum CEO James Mworia, in a memo sent to the staff in November last year, said Kirubi has travelled to the US for specialized treatment but did not disclose what was ailing the business mogul.
But according to renown State House blogger,Robert Alai, Mr kirubi has been suffering from chronic colon cancer.

“After looting billions from KENATCO, Uchumi and KQ, Colon Cancer is what is taking Kirubi to the grave and he knows it. Without a single cent. Sad.
He came back to Kenya to hand over his wealth to a trust as he continues to get his treatment in the US. Impact lives. Don’t loot!”Read Alai’s post
Disclaimer: kenyanwiki could not independently verify Mr Alai’s claims but we really wish him a quick recovery.
