Audio Interview with Diaspora Investor!

[AUDIO] there is also a written one below.

This is an interview that I was fortunate enough to get with a good friend of The Benin Epilogue and an up and coming Kenyan Diaspora investor, Hoseah Njuguna of Wajuzi Consultants. This was my first experience with anything audio related, so please go easy on me, OK? :)

[Written Interview] (a different interview with Hoseah, prior to his return to and from Kenya) a great compliment to the audio!

Of course, I love your comments. But, if you can't comment at this particular time- but would like to let us know that you were here; please sign and View my guestbook

First experience with anything audio? I couldn't tell at all. Great job. It was very informative. Hope to hear more in the future.

Hoseah hits the nail on the head when he says that service businesses are the way to go for Kenya and that Kenyans have learnt to settle for very little from the service sector.

Interesting interview and a great post Benin.

Thanks a lot. That's a very good sign too, I think-of how Kenya's economy is really developing.

By the way, I have noticed from your last couple of comments that you are doing some homework of your own on business in Kenya...Thats wonderful, I would love nothing more than to share your future business success story with the world!!!

Benin,

Good job, it is interesting to see what is going on in Kenya and the goals the government has set to get Kenyans in the Diaspora to be part of the economic growth of the country. People like Hoseah are the catalysts to promote this growth.

Joshua:

True indeed. Kenya has a lot going on. These types of conferences are really important, as are the Hoseah's of Africa..

On a side note, I heard that there was a Nigerian Diaspora investment forum somewhere in the States last month. I was sad to have missed it, but will be on the look out for others.

Great job on your posts as well.

I like that post. However, I think that Africain sometimes restrict themselve. I do not understand why he states at the end : " [...] without giving your idea away [...]" people in Africa are not willing to share knoweledge and business ideas as if someone will come and destroy or start the same idea. So what? what if they do? YOU -- US we have skill innate skill that will differentiate ourselves from everybody else. Africain do not want to share... by fear of being surpassed. Why??? and by all means I am talking in general here... I absolutely know that exceptions exist. However the sad reality remains. Spirit of competition and innovation comes from sharing ideas and thoughts... with that people and be more creative;; "how can I do what he/she does better?"
It seems to me that everybody is in they own little world.... to succeed we have to come together.... It is just a thought and a question that I have been asking for a long time. I am young very young.. but I see a totally different world for Africans right now and that world would only come if we get together and believe in our capabilites. It will come if we discover what we are here for and stop waiting for the western world to HELP us. The Diaspora is the KEY. I love your blog and I will come and visit it more often and start conversation.... great work.
