Jeff Koinange: I think it's a good thing my father died

Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Koinanage didn’t grow up with his father and therefore wasn’t really sad after he passed on.

Speaking in an interview with Yvonne Aoll, Jeff opened up saying that passing off his dad, Fredrick Mbiyu Koinange, who was the first Kenyan to open a car dealership, died in 1966 when Jeff was only two years old, didn’t affect him because his dad was always away.

What do you think you missed out on, not having a father around? to which Jeff answered “Nothing.I don’t regret anything. I’m glad he wasn’t there in a way.”

Good thing

Jeff also explained why his father’s death might have been a positve thing for him.

“Also because if he was around, we might have ended up as some really spoilt brats as kids, and I’m glad we didn’t end up that way. So, you know, it’s not my calling, but, I think it’s a good thing he went,” he said.

    What a dumb thing to say about your own father. Really dumb.

    A father gavevbirth to a son. The father dies soon after. The son grows up and when asked about his father he smiles and says it’s good he died ! You cannot assume that your success story to-date is a result of your fathers death. It’s is immature to think so!

    • Jeff is bitter, I think missing the Dad in childhood affected his personal perspective regarding the father figure. Maybe on his case he might be overdoing to his own or less
