Anthony Bourdain goes on a Tusker drinking spree in Nairobi

Published

on

International celebrity chef and host of CNN original series Parts Unknown, Anthony Bourdain, has finally found his way into Nairobi Kenya.

Bourdain and his filming crew have visited several Kenyan joints, including the RoadHouse Grill in Nairobi where they sampled nyama choma, Ugali and local beer, Tusker.

The  Grill, which is a popular nyama choma eatery, is owned by Robert Kingori who is a former Diasporian.

Kingori, 43, lived in Florida, USA, for 12 years until 2010 when he relocated back to Kenya.

In his American travel and food show, Bourdain travels around the world exploring the culture and local food. The show primarily travels to lesser known places which most Americans may not have heard of.

From his Twitter page, the chef seemed to have enjoyed Tusker while in Nairobi.

The show which premiered on April 14, 2013 will mostly showcase him sampling delicacies that sometimes make viewers squirm. The show has won 5 Grammy awards.

Boardain is in Kenya working on the latest episode of his CNN TV series “Parts Unknown”. Over the course of an hour-long lunch, he sampled some of the Nyama Mama modern takes on traditional Kenyan foods with W Kamau Bell, the San Francisco-based comedian with whom he is filming this episode of the show.

“Our dream has always been to take Nyama Mama to an international audience” says Ninaa Shanghavi, Director of The Good Earth Company that owns of Nyama Mama, who was on hand at the restaurant to make sure Bourdain got the best out of his experience. “As such we feel that out of all the upmarket eateries in Nairobi, ours is the one best positioned to show Chef Anthony a new and fresh take on Kenyan food”.

Shanghavi admits that it was not easy to convince the TV star to visit this trendy Westlands late night live music joint. Understandably, as the main aim of “Parts Unknown” is to discover the hidden culinary backwaters of each country Bourdain visits. That said, as an establishment at the forefront of the Kenyan culinary movement, Nyama Mama is quickly developing into one of the must-see places for out of town tourists to visit and as such, deserved even the smallest of mentions on the popular food discovery show.

Bourdain, who devoured his portion of ugali fries and seemed happy to dive into a steaming plate of grilled tilapia, was just coming from a a whirlwind tour of the city in which he has sampled some of the country’s unsung delights. Not eager to divulge whether it was goat’s head soup or mutura (blood sausage) that most tickled his fancy, he nonetheless did confide to have drunk a fair amount of Tusker lager since landing in JKIA last week.

Kenyan woman in US who was sexually assaulted found by family after 7 years

Published

on

A Kenyan woman who last year told Jacksonville, Florida police that she was sexually assaulted outside the First Baptist Church in the downtown area has been traced after her worried family said she hadn’t been in touch for a whole seven years.

The family of Beatrice Adhiambo Olwal Aka Betty Olual was last in touch with her in October 2013 by phone.  Since then, they had tried unsuccessfully to get in touch with her until an article dated 2 August 2019 showed up on google search, indicating that she had been sexually assaulted.

On Friday, sources told Kenya Satellite News Network that they were finally able to trace her.

According to a report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the woman told police on July 23 2019 that she was dropped off by a taxi near a bus station and was walking along the sidewalk by the church when she was approached from behind by a man on a black mountain bike.

According to the report, around 1:30 a.m., the woman said the man dropped his bike, walked up to her, held her at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her. He then left the area on his bike.

Local news outlets reported that she had told the police that she walked to a nearby hospital and checked in at about 2:38 a.m., where she told staff what happened. Officers noted in the report the man went by the name Derek.

“Officers went to the scene and found a wristband on the sidewalk next to the church,” noted a police report.

A statement from First Baptist Church reads in part:

“Our church is locked and secured at night, and we have security present during our work hours. We work with JSO to provide a safe place for worshipers. We are grieved by such horrendous acts of violence.”

Betty used to frequent the area.

“What happened is unnerving. I stay near the church because I feel  secure there,”  she is quoted as telling a local station, who described her as homeless.
