KICC CEO Nana Gecaga Celebrates 22 Years of Soberness

Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) CEO Nana Gecaga recently marked 22 years of soberness.

In a statement while marking the milestone on Sunday June 4, the CEO noted that she is proud of herself for remaining sobber all those years.

“22 years of being sober. I just want to thank everyone who has played a role in supporting me to get this far. Lastly, I want to thank me, myself and I. I have to give credit where it is due,” she wrote.

She further noted that she always put her sobriety first always.

“I’ve remained committed to my sobriety, I’ve put it first always and been very proud of where I have come and where I’m going. It takes courage to go against the grain and it takes humility to not only realise you have a problem but then commit the entire rest of your life to change it for the better,” she added.

Speaking in a past interview, Nana disclosed that she missed a change of being an thlete due to overindulgence in alcohol during her younger years.

“My first year in the institution was very rocky and that’s when things started to fall apart. I became an alcoholic after that and I was forced to go to rehab at the age of 21. Back then I would take 24 bottles of beer daily and a half or a full bottle of liquor. Being a kid there were many things I wanted to become- a president, an athlete and many more things but alcohol ruined these dream

“My passion was actually in sports, I love football, basketball and I even qualified for the 1996 summer Olympics held in Atlanta Canada. My biggest regret is that I missed out on the Olympics even after qualifying because at the time I had overindulged in alcohol. Now I look back and say it was my time to do service,” Gecaga said.
