His last answer makes complete sense considering that his wife is not only the mother of his two kids but also an accomplished pilot-A modern example of a triple threat. 

He even praised her last month after she made a difficult landing in Heathrow Airport amidst a terrible storm.

Ronald himself was also a pilot with Kenya Airways (KQ) for 11 years. At KQ, Karauri went on to serve as the Kenya Airline Pilots Association secretary-general before exiting KQ to start Sportpesa.
