It is very simple, Francis, two weeks ago a friend of mine who had been insisting for some time. Because you know I do a lot of work, a lot of walking and this particular time because I was travelling, getting numb and tired so this guy managed to convince me to use some gadget which to the best of my opinion I thought was authorized,” Kuria told Citizen TV’s Francis Gachuri.
