New CBK boss to live in a hostel

02 July 2015, 10:19

Nairobi - The new CBK boss, Dr Patrick Ngugi Njoroge has said NO to luxuries attached to his office, including a mansion, luxurious cars, security detail and a high-end smartphone.

Instead of two-acre accommodation in the luxurious Muthiga suburb, he will live with fellow members of Opus Dei at a hostel in Loresho.

Most members of Opus Dei lead ordinary lives as lay priests, and strive to uphold holiness.

Ngugi was previously working for IMF, Daily Nation reports, where he was taking home KES 3 million monthly.

During his vetting, Dr Ngugi raised brows of many Kenyans when he disclosed that he was still single at 54 and did not have a single asset in the country despite the big paycheck.
