The Unwritten With: IAN DUNCAN – UNPACKING HIS LIFE AS A WRITER

You might want to know who Ian Duncan is. He is a writer, a student, a son, a sibling, and he is soft-spoken. He also makes people laugh on social media.

Ian is finding his groove as a writer; he currently works for Citizen TV, and for fun, he expresses himself through Mister Left, a humour blog he runs with his friend.

When I ask about his big break careerwise, Ian, of course, mentions Citizen TV. And then he goes on to narrate a rather bizarre story.

The Unwritten With: DR. WALE AKINYEMI – ON BETRAYAL, HAWKING, AND TRANSFORMING LIVES

I am in Dr. Wale Akinyemi’s home, in Karen.

Outside, the compound is green, and lush, and large.

Inside, the house is magnificent, with warm earthy tones for the decor, interesting black hardwood for the dinning area, and photos of him, his wife and their three, now young-adult children, on the walls.

The Unwritten With: CLAIRE ONEKO – ON LIFE BEYOND HER FAMOUS POLITICAL SURNAME

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.

The Unwritten With: VICTORIA RUBADIRI – APPRECIATING HER JOURNEY TO THE TOP

You want to meet Victoria Rubadiri, at least once in your lifetime. Watching her on TV working as a journalist and news anchor,  Victoria is, in person, everything you imagine her to be: extremely articulate, confident, polite and straight-talking.

Victoria on TV, comes across as someone who knows what she wants out of life, and she does. She is very self-aware: she knows what works for her, what doesn’t, as well as how to work with her strengths, and how to accept her flaws.

For an in-depth conversation, Victoria and I met at the jaw-dropping Gem Suites in Riverside.

The Unwritten With: CIRŪ NGIGI – VULNERABLE AND OWNING IT

You know of Cirū  Ngigi, right? If you are, at this very moment, trying to figure out where you know the name from, here’s a decent guess, it’s probably from Facebook.

Because Cirū is big on Facebook. She’s big on Facebook because people love her. And they love her because her posts are  inclusive, and progressive, and vulnerable, and often very hilarious.

Cirū, on Facebook, posts about almost everything. On her posts, Cirū  talks about friendships, relationships, self-love, the education system, politics, governance, religion, and, of late, she’s really been swearing by Tinga Tinga Tales (a praise-worthy musical currently showing in Nairobi, throughout the month of September).
