"Agriculture matters to me the most ... it can be used to either destroy or build a country, region and also the continent."

What inspires you?

Life inspires me, the fact that I can wake up every day and breathe meaning I have the power for that day to do something that will have a positive impact on society at large. At times people inspire me, those that need help and cannot somehow due to unavoidable circumstances have that help and I can help them ... then am inspired!

Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

Agriculture matters to me the most ... it can be used to either destroy or build a country, region and also the continent. The fact that there is so much climate change is due to poor agricultural habit and not following what good agricultural practice entails. I became aware of that through the climate change and food right campaigns aimed at creating awareness to the youths on the need and I am involved in the formulation of the strategies to come up with ways in which information can be disseminated to even the most remote regions in Kenya.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

A good leader is a good listener, one people can trust and who also trusts his/ her team members. A good planner and a strategist. Committed to fulfilling practicable promises made and formulating proper means of achieving these. A good leader always makes sure that the people around him are comfortable not just for the purposes of having his or her man in good books but having people meet their goals and set targets in a way and manner that is humane.

Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already?

Yes, it has by allowing posts such as blogs, I have been able to posts some blogs relating to food insecurity and food rights. I have also written articles relating to Agriculture and how nature affects it.
