Mike Mondo spoke about himself in a wide-ranging interview that I had with him. He was very forthright and divulged a lot the public might not be aware of.
One of the things he spoke about was the person who had most inspired him. He replied by saying that his late father was that person, describing him as ‘mtu wa watu’.
He added that the person who he currently admired was one of the seniors that he worked with saying that he would like to be like him at his age. He refused to say the name of that senior but I have my suspicions.
In the quickfire interview, I asked the presenter many more questions. His answers were as fascinating as they were illuminating. The rest of the interview with Mike is below;
