"I celebrate my birthday every year because I do not take it for granted that am alive. 16 years ago while in India, I was in a very serious accident with two of my friends. We were presumed dead and taken to the mortuary. Its by God's grace that two of us are alive today."
Those were the words spoken by Ahadi Kenya CEO Dr Stanley Kamau that left his guests shocked. This was during his 44th birthday dinner celebrations held at the Sarova Panafric on Thursday night.
Emceed by the hilarious 'Dr Ofweneke', the intimate gathering of family and friends wined and dined and there was plenty of laughter. Kamau was hailed as a compassionate and caring man whose heart knows no boundaries.
In what was a rare public social appearance, Margaret Kenyatta, wife to Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, described Kamau as a great man whose love for Kenya was endless. His work as the 'jiggerman' has changed the lives of Kenyans. "May God bless you with many more years."
Samawati band kept the guests entertained as did 'Cucu Nyakairu' of Inooro FM and artiste Avril, who sang an amazing version of 'happy birthday' dedicated to 'jiggerman'.
