During a recent luncheon organized by BAKE (Bloggers Association of Kenya) which was hosted by the US ambassador, I was lucky to meet the beautiful, intelligent and outspoken Ory Okolloh, aka @kenyanpundit. She sat across me at the lunch table airing her views in a gentle but somehow commanding tone that made everyone at the table pay close attention to every word that she uttered.
