Chris Kirubi lost wrist watch worth sh.15 million                 By News point correspondent

Kenyan entrepreneur whose name prominently featured in the Forbes magazine as one of the richest people in Africa, Chris Kirubi dramatically lost his wrist watch worth ksh.15 million.

Kirubi who has built a very successful business portfolio consisting of real estate, manufacturing and media appeared to unmoved when he narrated circumstances that surrounded the disappearance of the expensive watch.

‘’ Immediately I lost the diamond Rolex watch I went back to Swaziland where I bought another one, exactly the same model that disappeared’’, he quipped.

The  DJ who is worth $ 300 million shocked a group of top Chief Executive Offices from the Association of Kenya Insurers (AKI), who remained open mouthed when he disclosed the value of  watch.

Kirubi was the chief guest at the Association of Kenya Insurers (AKI), this year’s Agents of the Year Awards (AAYA) celebrated at the Safari park Hotel in Nairobi and which was also attended by 417 agents across the country.

Last time Kenyans debated on individual’s wear was when, the controversial author Miguna Miguna in his book peeling back the mask revealed that Lands minister James Orengo purchased  a suit worth sh. 500,000.

The media guru said the watch was under-insured in Kenya and was forced to top up millions when he had gone back to buy a similar one.

The 71-year old investor who kicked off his empire by purchasing International house at the heart of Nairobi decried the Kenyan poor economy and called on the voters to vote wisely in the coming general election saying the economy of the state depends on their decision.

Kirubi is the largest shareholder in Centum Investments,  a private equity firm listed both on the Nairobi and Uganda stock exchanges.

He is also reported to be the largest individual Shareholder in UAP insurance, East Africa’s third insurance company.

Turbulence hit his career in 2008 where as chairman of the board of Uchumi Supermarkets, a publicly owned chain of retail stores, he was accused of using his influence to sell a piece of its property without independent valuation or an open competitive process.

Although Kirubi admitted no wrongdoing, the case was finally dismissed in May 2011 on the grounds that there was insufficient evidence to implicate him in the case of defrauding the retailer.
