I’m good at.............debating logically.

I’m very bad at........lying.

The last book l enjoyed reading is........The Jury by John Grisham.

The most surprising thing that happened to me.........joining politics without knowing it.

A common misconception of me is.......I'm playing politics when I do charity work.

One of my worst childhood fears was...........my mother's red slippers, which she used for discipline.

My ideal night out is............I rarely go out unless for a meeting or a family outing.

In another life l’d have been.........still be a businessman and a farmer.

If I was a politician, I would.......serve my people diligently and uplift their lives through economic empowerment projects.

The best age to be is............60, you’ve seen your children through school, invested and achieved most of your life targets. Time to slow down and enjoy life.

The best part of my job is........the pressure and excitement of the urgency to meet targets of the ever-vibrant international trade.

My greatest regret is.........getting into the transport business and losing more than Sh7 million.

Historical figure I most identify with.........anti-apartheid icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela.

Living person I most admire............President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.

My greatest achievement is..........becoming a CEO on my 30th birthday.

My favourite writer is............John Grisham.

My lowest point of misery is..........when I see society discriminate against people living with disability, the poor and the sick.

My greatest possession is……Lands, land is the best asset, it appreciates in value, you can destroy everything in it but land still remains intact.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be........Dear Lord, take good care of my wife Tabitha and daughters Shirleen and Sharon
