As he continues his farewell series of visits, Mr Hailey revealed how away from his ambassadorial responsibilities, he retreats to his Muthaiga home to satisfy his passion for farming.

Speaking to Citizen TV’s Denis Otieno, Mr Hailey revealed how the produce from the farm helps feed over 4,000 High Commission guests every year.

On Wednesday, Mr Hailey met with Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Devolution and ASALs Eugene Wamalwa.
