Charles Njonjo, Kenya’s only surviving member of the first-ever cabinet after independence turns 100 today.
Despite living for a century, Njonjo still seems to be eloquent and articulate in speech.
During an interview with local TV stations, Njonjo alias ‘The Duke of Kabeteshire’ was thankful for all the birthday wishes that he has received.
The 100-year-old also went on to share valuable tips on how to live this long.
“I look after myself. I swim daily, I used to do 12 laps, now I do only seven. I also have a bicycle which I ride for 10 minutes daily, on top of the treadmill which I do for 10 minutes daily. I’m also careful about what I eat; I don’t eat nyama choma, I eat a lot of veggies,” reiterated the centenarian.
The former attorney general had last weekend went for gorilla tracking at Uganda’s Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.
Unknown to many, the centenarian attended Kings College Buddo, a secondary school in the western parts of Kampala.
