Sasha Mutai and I agree to meet up. On the day, he shows up earlier than expected. Then at exactly 6pm, he texts to inform me that he is already at Under The Radar, in Valley Arcade. I pick up the phone, ready to call and receive him, only to spot him at the bar.
We exchange pleasantries then sit down for our chat and the meal of the evening; this includes Sasha’s Greek Salad as a starter and Fish Masala with Jeera Rice as mains. No dessert.
“Is the name ‘Sasha’ unisex?” I ask him.
He says it is. And it’s short for Alexander. His full name is Alexander Kiplagat Mutai.
