I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Ms. Valerie Wairimu Kimani for taking home the Mercedes benz and all that other stuff provided by EABL …or is it KBL. Getting through from a pool of thousands of east Africans and getting to the top is not an easy task and I believe that Val (that’s what we call her) worked had.
The keen reader may notice that I have put Val’s second name. I have not been spying on her but it is just to say that we have a history. It is not everyone that has been with a famous person…so I must be lucky. But that besides the point.

We joined campus (Daystar University) on the same day with Val and we shared a class or two (I particularly remember we were in the same Political Science class). Val is a talented hardworking individual and will definitely do Kenya proud in the showbiz industry.
What can I say but wish her all the best as she continues to venture into this field… by the roadside, Val, I also hope to ride in that merc one of this fine days.
