Remembering Kofi Annan

As we walked with him on Trafalgar Square, it was difficult to tell he was a Nobel Laureate and a global statesman. He was unassuming, humble calm and very attentive. I still recall his words to us: You are not too old to learn or too young to lead. We had asked him whether The Elders would intervene as following the annulment of the presidential election and he said, ‘No we don’t have a mandate but I have faith in Kenya. Read more
