5-Minute-Interview: I have 2 left feet but I nod my head to a beat quite well


I’m good at………leading. It feels good to give direction and watch them being followed.

I’m very bad at……dancing. I have two left feet. I nod my head to a beat quite well though.

The last book I enjoyed was…The Bible. Best life guideline.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is…finding a rather good job right after the completion of my O levels. I did not have the qualifications but I had the zeal to learn.

A common misconception of me is…I am an introvert. I don't talk much but I'm a great listener, which is fundamental for great communication to take place.

One of my worst childhood fears was…snails. They were everywhere, especially when it rained. Their slimy nature was disgustingly scary.

My ideal night out is…at a club with my friends watching soccer and having drinks.

In another life I’d have been…an accountant. I even look like one. A lecturer would also be interesting.

If I was a politician, I would…take my role as a leader seriously and fulfil all the objectives I set. I would also focus on the poor.

The best age to be…32. Finally settled with a family and concentrating on career growth.

The best part of my job is…completing a project successfully and satisfying the client.

My greatest regret is…none.

Historical figure I most identify with…former Internal Security minister George Saitoti.

Living person I most admire…US President Barack Obama.

My greatest achievement…getting my master's degree. It's a tough road but very fulfilling.

My greatest possession is…my friends and family. They have lifted me up when the world seems harsh.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be…Lord, have mercy on me. I am a sinner.
