We will cover business and the economy in a way that has never been done in Kenya. In this endeavour, we have embarked on a global benchmarking tour to set our standards to match the best of the best in business journalism. Today my team conducted an extensive benchmarking tour of CNBC Africa and Forbes Africa Magazine here in Johannesburg . We look forward to collaborating with Business Tv's in Africa and beyond. Welcome to Fanaka Television where we are guided by our motto 'Strictly Business'. What a pleasure to once again reconnect with Roberta Naicker, MD CNBC Africa after sooo many years and the very funny Chris Bishop who I worked with during my days at CNBC Africa.
