The Accused: Jeff Koinange, formerly Africa Chief Correspondent, CNN.
Key Attributes: Successful international journalist of Kenyan decent.
Career Highlight: Sought after reporter during Katrina. Added the authentic, chaotic, destitute reporting that only a journalist who has covered Sierra Leone’s civil war could!
Accusation: Ambiguous at best; date rape? Affair? Who Knows?
The Accuser: One Ms. Marianne Briner. A Swiss national with key business engagements in Africa and especially Kenya.
Key Attributes: Swiss National
Career Highlight: Testified in 2005 that she had a secret relationship with former Kenyan President, Daniel Arap Moi.
Intention: Unclear, published blog with emails from their exchange with Koinange. Publicity stunt, bitterness? Who Knows?
Facts: Koinange did have an affair with said Ms. Briner. Ms. Briner also has had or claims to have had affairs with other senior Kenyan ministers.
Damage: Nothing major, just Jeff Koinange’s Career as a respected international journalist.
Side Note: Ms. Briner continues her life in a secret location in Spain.
3N Advise to Koinange: Do as Kobe did but skip the 4 million dollar ring. It is a fact there was an affair; admit it and start a 12 step character / career resurrection program. I pray you will not need to use any of your KTN’s contacts.
Spend your savings / investments wisely, the western corporate world is never eager to forgive a successful African individual.
Conclusion: Do Not have an affair with a Swedish Woman who has already accused your country’s President and cabinet ministers. Choose your affairs in the future wisely!
