At the end of his latest comment piece in the newspaper, he says that one of the many perks of being a celebrity is getting free things and also providing the opportunity of telling the world about places that are struggling and really in need of a boost.
“Kenya (a country I love) has suffered a serious decline in tourism because of terrorist atrocities in recent years,” he says.
“I returned recently from there, having stayed at Hemingways Hotel in Watamu on the Indian Ocean. I paid for a friend’s room and was given a complimentary upgrade. It is pure paradise,” he adds.
Rounding off his article, Judge Rinder says: “Kenya is open for business — and it really needs yours.”
