Already, Kirubi’s daughter MaryAnne Musangi has not managed to stabilise things sources close to Capital FM indicating that the Kirubi family want to dispose of Capital FM. The challenge is that they are quoting Ksh 900 million as the buying price, a figure industry insiders believe to be outrageous.
Sources close to Chris Kirubi and his family indicate that the businessman has transferred most of his businesses to an entity within government.
This is the second time in one year where Chris Kirubi is being flown to the US for treatment. he was first flown to the county in August 2018.
