Jeff Koinange is one of the most dynamic entertainers in Kenya. The man whose voice took him to the rarified air of working for CNN has been a fixture on a our screens these past few years.
Yesterday, the man hosted the Sunday Live bulletin on Citizen TV and delivered a candid anecdote about an experience that he had had this weekend.
Jeff had gone to Chaka Ranch with his son for a day out but the drama came about when he encountered a couple of kids on the road.
In a sideline banter with co-host, Victoria Rubadiri, the anchor explained that the children appeared abruptly and were following a leader.
‘We just drove back from Chaka Ranch, my goodness. I was driving as well as I could but you know at some point, kids cross the road. And you know, when there is a bunch of kids and one crosses (the road), then the rest follow absolutely.’
But fortunately, Jeff was able to deal with the scare and stopped just a hairbreadth away from the kids with no one getting injured.
Koinange, together with his son Jamal Mbiyu Koinange, were leaving Chaka Ranch where they had spent a family weekend out.
Koinange’s narration of his startling moment on the road was prompted by a news report in the bulletin where the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) was warning motorists to observe all traffic rules in the festive season.
