Meet an electronics repairer in Nairobi Kenya


A few days ago I received a phone call from a gentleman who introduced himself as a Technician Based at Ngara market in Nairobi Kenya who came across my blog via the internet and wanted  to meet together for a chat.

So due to my busy schedule we arranged we can meet last Saturday the 25th June 2011, Saturdays are especially convenient to me because it’s when I normally go to the electronics shops in Town to replenish my spare stocks and I figured out that I can multi task(combine the two assignments).

So after buying the spares I went to check up with him and we meet as agreed, he gave me a brief background about himself and his repair works and I  was surprised to learn that he has has been in this business for over 30 years.

So I asked him what keep him going and he answered in one word “passion” in electronics that keep him going, also to keep him up to date with the technology he uses the internet to search for relevant information, and never stop learning.

I asked him how he promotes his business and he told me that most of his customers come to his business through referrals from other satisfied customers.

Below are some of the photos of his workshop.






Later I proceeded to the outskirts of Nairobi to attend a wedding ceremony of one of my colleague and here are some photos of the occasion.

    Thanks for your compliment on the wedding photos of my Colleague.
    About me resembling the former USA 100M sprinter Carl Lewis… I really don't know but one thing I know is that there are several Americans with roots here Kenya, a good example is the current president of USA whose father is a Kenyan...by the way Kenyan are also known to be very good at sports particularly long distance running.
    Otherwise have a good day...Humphrey
