If tracking gorillas before he turns 100 was on Kenya’s first Attorney-General Charles Njonjo’s bucket list, he can now tick off that item.
The 99-year-old spent a part of his Sunday morning engaging in the adventure in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.
The activity was among several lined up for the ageing but articulate former politician, whose penchant for black, striped coats, gold chain watches and bowler hats earned him the nickname “Duke of Kabeteshire”.
In a short clip shared by the Uganda Wildlife Authority’s (AWU) social media sites, Mr Njonjo says he is fond of the country because of the experience he had at Kings College Buddo, a secondary school in the western parts of Kampala.
“I was very lucky to see the gorillas — two babies and two big bulls,” Mr Njonjo said.
Afterward, officials from the authority presented Mr Njonjo with a tracking certificate and wished him the best.
