Chris Kirubi recently admitted having cancer brought him closer to God

Now, he feels like marriage should never be a rushed endeavour

The businessman advised his fans to always proceed with moderation and wait for the blessing of marriage to come at its own time

Kirubi added rushing into matrimony might cause people to marry the wrong partners

Chris Kirubi is a business mogul, an astute entrepreneur and a man after God’s heart.

However, people have always wondered how a successful guy like him chose not to search for his missing rib after being single for nearly two decades.

During an interview with Business Daily, the Cytonn Investments boss chose to clear the air on why his marital status has always been stuck on single.

The 79-year-old billionaire said he is not willing to chase after the idea of marriage just to please the society.

According to him, rushing into holy matrimony can only lead to a massive heartbreak.

Apparently, when people rush into marriage without sitting back and being patient, they end up getting hitched to the wrong person.

The tycoon reckons that marriage is a blessing but still insists everything happens in its own time.

“Marriage comes to you and it is a blessing, but you do not go chasing it around because you will get the wrong partner. If I am blessed then I will be blessed,” Kirubi said.

Not too long ago, the wealthy businessman admitted his battle with cancer brought him closer to God.

“It is a shame we always go to God when we need Him, but God will never turn you away because you came to Him later rather than earlier,” Kirubi noted.

By JUDITH GICOBI

Britain’s Prince Harry conveyed “great sadness” on Sunday after he and his wife Meghan royal titles were taken away as part of their agreement with the Queen.

Harry says he saw this as the only way for him to go in the aim for “a more peaceful life” with his wife and young son Archie.

“It brings me great sadness that it has come to this,” Harry told supporters of his Africa-based charity in London.

These were his first emotional remarks since the exit from the royals whose goal was to calm the crisis shaking Britain’s ancient monarchy.

Harry was also frank in that he has been faced with some uneasiness and anxiety since taking the big step of resigning from his royal duties and embarking on a new journey and life abroad.

He was mentally prepared to lose the lavish lifestyle supported by the public money. But what pained him the most was losing his military titles and patronages he got after serving two tours in Afghanistan with the British Army.

The couple agreed to pay back approximately taxpayers money $3.1 million used to renovate their home near Windsor Castle.

“I know I haven’t always gotten it right but, as far as this goes, there really was no other option,” Harry said.
