So on the 3rd day of March 2018 a video of me Swimming in River Turkwel in Turkana surfaced online and went viral.

A few people found it funny, Majority were extremely offended.

I apologized for the Video.

Eric´s video swimming in River Turkwell went viral with majority of Kenyans displeased with his actions.

This got so bad to the point that it almost cost him his lifetime.

A few corporates that were in line to Sponsor my inaugural Stadium tour which was in two weeks time were all over sudden not returning my calls.

At around 12:46 PM Bob Collymore sent me the text above [below].

He then called me and asked me to see him in the morning, I did

However, the late Bob put that aside, acknowledging fact that he did apologize in good heart and that is the best he could give.

He presented him a lifetime opportunity because when the world did not believe him, only Bob did.

and after a long conversation about so many things he stood up suddenly and Said

“Eric I have a meeting, I will Sponsor the Stadium tour forward me the proposal NOW!”

This came as a complete surprise since we barely discussed Sponsorship.
