Businessman, GOR SEMELANGO, reveals why he wears two watches each worth Sh 500,000.

...meet Murdoch. I had ten minutes to present my case.

I fumbled all through. I guess I was not psychologically prepared to meet the most influential media owner in the world. The deal didn’t go through.

You wear two watches worth Sh500,000. Why is that?

Time is money, and I take my time very seriously. I have businesses in New York and my two watches are set in different time zones.

Let us be specific, which business are you in exactly?


I am in the petroleum business, my friend. It’s very tough, but lucrative. I still run Talanta Media, a publishing house.

What is one thing people do not know about you?

I have paramilitary training. I will not tell you where I trained.

So with the training, do you need a gun? Are you a licensed holder?

Do I look like I need a gun? Even if I had a gun I wouldn’t tell the whole world. Then why do you come with three bodyguards to the interview?

This meeting is just a tiny fraction of my evening. I still have other meetings. About my bodyguards, it’s a matter of security. I am not paranoid but having security isn’t a bad thing.

Closing quote?

The easiest way to remain poor is to pretend you are rich. Forget about swag, it won’t pay the bills, go out and work hard. Invest in contacts, and build your business.
