5-Minute-Interview: Riding to Naivasha on my bike is like going next door


I'm good at…..riding motorcycles.

I'm very bad at……..remembering people’s names.

The last book I enjoyed reading is......Manuscript Found in Accra by Paulo Coelho.

A common misconception of me is….....I am a snob.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is….last year when I fell for the first time from a motorcycle. I kept telling my instructor John Irungu that I was fine, even with bruises and blood on my shoulder, so he would let me get back on the bike and try the stunt again.

One of my worst childhood fears is......the dark.

I wish people would take more notice of..........Respect for a biker, is respect for a life.

My ideal night out of my friends calling me out for a random ride and in minutes, we end up being 10 bikers ready to ride to whatever destination we decide. Surprisingly enough Naivasha is like going to the next door neighbours.

In another life I would have been…….still a biker.

If I was a politician, I would… less and act more in helping the community.

The best age to be........30.

The best part of my job is…..meeting and helping children in the community.

Living people I most admire are……US President Barack Obama and Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe.

My greatest achievement is......……so far in my biker journey, cleaning up Bahati Maternity Hospital in Industrial Area with my fellow bikers.

My greatest regret is….......none.

My greatest possession is… bike.

My favourite author is……Danielle Steele

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be…..Fear is stupid and so are regrets.
