It goes without a doubt that doctors are one of the best paid professionals worldwide. Doctors spend so much time and brains to learn and train. On top of that, it is also quite costly to study medicine, especially if you are self- sponsored. The good thing is that once you are well trained, you will be very marketable since your knowledge and skills could literally save the world. Below is a list of top 10 richest doctors in Kenya:
1. Dr. Catherine Nyongesa
She is the owner of Texas Cancer Centre, who is an oncology specialist by profession. She earns about ksh. 500 million annually.
