Chris Kirubi Children: The late Chris Kirubi’s son Robert Kirubi turned down his father’s offer to work in the family empire in favour of his own career. This was revealed by Chris Kirubi during an interview he conducted in September last year.
Robert Kirubi, the only son among Chris Kirubi children and an international corporate executive, currently works with DHL in Brussels Belgium. Robert is the Head of Global Customer Programs at DHL Service Logistics.
He previously served as a Vice President at DHL in charge of business development before being promoted to client support and later to Vice President in charge of DHL Service Logistics.
“My daughter is here in Kenya is the MD of my factory, Haco Industries. My son is in Brussels, he works for DHL. I think they pay him so much money he refused to work for me but its good he has also accumulated a lot of experience,” Kirubi said of his children.
The younger Kirubi holds a bachelor of science degree from the Northeastern University based in Boston, USA.
Before flying to the US, Robert attended local schools in Kenya included Hillcrest School and St Mary’s School where his schoolmates included President Uhuru Kenyatta and media personality Jeff Koinange.
Mary-Anne runs the state of the art Olpul Restaurant at Two Rivers Mall and is also the Managing Director of her father’s Haco Industries. She is married to lawyer Andrew Musangi.
