Claire Oneko is a dreamer, a creative, and a film producer. She has with her, an extensive South African education and work experience under her belt. Her work has, over time, involved some very impressive clients, this including KFC, the fast food chain.
On the day of her interview, Claire arrives at The Carnivore right on time. It’s mid-morning and she tells me she needs to get back home in good time, because they’re having a family gathering with her in-laws. She would also like to beat the rains.
As we walk into Carnivore from the parking lot, I ask about her surname, seeing as on her blog and on emails, she’d interacted with me using her brand name: Claire Ash Meadow, a name I found interesting.
She reveals, to my surprise, that her full name is Claire Ashlee Oneko. She is from the famous Oneko political family, and Achieng Oneko, who was a member of the historic, heroic and admirable Kapenguria Six, was her grandfather.
