Kenyan billionaire, Chris Kirubi, has disclosed how his long battle with cancer has brought him closer to God.
Kirubi, who has been in and out of hospital for sometime, said he sought God during his most difficult time and true to his belief, his prayers were answered.
Speaking to the Daily Nation, the philanthropist confided how prayers from friends helped him in his time of need and that he had picked many lessons from the journey.
According to Kirubi, his belief in God was because he had always believed he could not make any progress without the almighty's intervention.
However, being confided on a sickbed for long revealed to him that beyond friends' help and concern, there was an all powerful God who he even moved closer to.
"I'm closer to God now because I have believed that without God's will I would not be who I am today. It took me many months lying in bed while sick to believe that God is the most powerful," he said.
During the interview, Kirubi said it was a shame that human beings usually run to God in their time of need instead of having a stable and continuous relationship.
The 79-year-old is the founder and owner of many companies in the country among them Centum. Despite old age, not being married and sickly, Kirubi said he was building a dream home for himself.
