03 May Spending Quality Time with Kenya’s most recent Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
There are just some invitations you can never turn down. Recently I was invited to attend a speech by Kenya’s most recent Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Talk about history, PM Odinga’s father was Kenya’s first Vice-President when they gained independence from the British half a century ago. PM Odinga is on a speaking tour at many of the USA’s most prestigious Universities on the East Coast. I had the chance to discuss many things with the Prime Minister and gain a lot of knowledge with regard to Africa’s past and how it should go forward. PM Odinga is an extremely impressive person that one can learn so much from about Africa. When I mentioned I previously worked for a global German company he advised me he schooled in Leipzig and speaks German (including several dialects) fluently. And that was just the start!
I will forever be impressed by many of the people I meet from Africa, gain from the experiences and forever cherish the relationships.
