When KTN’s Catherine Mwangi and I meet at The Boma Hotel on an early Thursday morning, our interview starts out rather messy.
We switch sitting positions around the hotel’s Atrium about three times, she complains I’m too fussy and then concludes we might as well do the interview while standing. We laugh.
When I explain that I don’t want spoons, forks and knives as part of the audio recording, Catherine puts her journalism cap on and immediately understands.
Once settled at the hotel’s Business Center, Catherine, who is in: simple cornrows, a blue and white printed top, smart-casual pants and black flat shoes, takes out a black scarf from her handbag, wraps it around herself, gets warm, and smiles at me. She’s ready. I feel uncomfortable.
