    Uhuru’s niece Nana Gecaga: I would have been an Olympic champion but alcohol ruined all that

    President Uhuru Kenyatta’s niece Nana Gecaga had dreams of winning a gold medal while younger but she recently shared that alcohol addiction set her on another path.
    The KICC director, who has opened up reveal times about her alcohol addiction, told Kiss 100 that in 1996 she was really hoping she’ll come back home with an Olympic gold medal but the addiction materialized. She was in campus then.
    “The person you see here today has had many lives before who I am today. My passion was actually sports. I was a very big athlete back in the day, and I actually qualified for the ’96 Olympics.” she said.
    “I used to love, soccer, football and basketball. At the same time, I also wanted to be a game changer and help people, because if you are in a position where you can help, just help because it doesn’t cost you anything.”

    New path

    She went on to add that the habit costed her her dreams after going to University in America. She had plans of changing the world but all seemed shattered after the addiction. Nana finally settled on leadership because she also wanted to be a leader.
    “My first year at the university in America was very rocky, and that is where my everything fell apart. I was an addict of alcohol but I was able to go to rehab and from there, it’s been 19 years without drinking.”
    Adding:
    “It definitely builds character because it takes a lot of strength to acknowledge that you have a problem, whatever it is. Getting out of it is something I am happy about because most people do not manage.”
