Our very own Njeri Kinyanjui was last week featured as a Guest Anchor on Kenya Television Network’s Friday Night Briefing.
Talking to the hostess, Betty Kyalo, renowned Kenyan-German entrepreneur turned politician got to share on her role as a councillor in the Gemeinderat in Reutlingen as well as her journey from being a student in Germany 32 years ago.
Some of the questions Njeri discussed in this interview include:
- What attracted her to Germany?
- How do people get into politics in Germany
- Differences between local leadership in Germany and Kenya?
- Women empowerment: Participation of Women in politics in Germany vs Kenya?
We’ve featured her as a business person, with her company, Hottpott Sauces (Adding Flavour to Germany with African Chutneys and Sauces) then we followed her move into politics when she joined the Greens Party to join the Gemeinderat in Reutlingen as a councillor (Kenyan-German Entrepreneur Joins Politics). We’re proud this time to follow her debut appearance on Kenyan media.
