Kenyans are generous, welcoming and loving. I’m a diplomat’s son and was a diplomat myself, so I grew up globe-trotting every few years of my life. This is the first time I have no deadline about moving somewhere. So, for as long as Kenya will have me, I am happy to stay. My family loves it here,” Millo told Standard Digital News(SDE)- Source.
