Not many people knew that President Obama was hosted by Capital FM yesterday. They had set camp at Kenyatta University and conducting the interview was presenter Olive Burrows.
It was a curious selection considering the ‘frontrunners’ were thought to be KTN’s Jeff Koinange and NTV’s Larry Madowo. Americans are very cautious and if I were to guess, I’d say they saw Jeff Koinange as controversial, considering his CNN times, and Larry Madowo inexperienced or immature to conduct such a high profile interview. Or perhaps they did now want to take sides so they went for someone neutral.
In the interview, Obama said he would love to go to the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti, climb the Kilimanjaro and visit Lamu again.
He also said something about House of Cards at the end.
