Jambonewspot.com-Kenyan native Ali Velshi has been named immigrant of the week by Immigration Daily, a resource for legal professionals. Ali who is CNN’s chief business correspondent and also a regular anchor of the network’s news broadcasts was born in Nairobi and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

The 42 year old is also the host of the weekly show Your $$$$$ and is also the author of the book Gimme My Money Back: Your Guide to Beating the Financial Crisis, which was published in 2009.

In 1996, Velshi was awarded a fellowship to the United States Congress from the American Political Science Association.

In 2008, he reported on the killing of former Pakistani PM Benazir Bhutto from the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, which was bombed later that year.

During the financial meltdown of 2008/2009, Ali was ever present in our living rooms as viewers tuned to CNN to watch the unfolding events on Wall Street.

Another notable Kenyan native who immigrated to Canada is Zain Verjee. Verjee started her television broadcast career as an anchor on the Kenya Television Network (KTN) evening news and host of the talk show Third Opinion.

Verjee is now the anchor for CNN’s World Report and is based in the network’s London bureau.. She previously covered the US State Department for CNN.

    These folks aint Kenyan…tehy pay homage to India. Plse, jambonewspot, look for your home heroes. These Patels are first to get on the plane and take out their money at the slightest sign of trouble in Kenya, never mind that we have let them take charge of our economy.

    people give Idi Amin a bad name for nothing: Idi put uganda’s economy in the African Ugandan’s hands. They are doing fine. These Patels are busy dumping garbage in Kenya without fear…bure kabisa.

      I, personally, understand freedom of speech. Poko you’re entitled to your views, but the way you express those views communicates your true character, and your message is buried by your offensive words. I always get troubled by your reponses with attacks people, rather than the issues. What a missed opportunity to make a stand for decency!

    I am proud of Ali Vershi, Zain Verjee and all those people who have worked hard in their respective fields to make the world a better place. Thanks Jambonewspot for highlighting the great achievements of the world’s most finest. I watch Ali regularly and I thank him for shedding light on the business trends in today’s world. He has made his mark the world of business and journalism.

    Sorry to the above respondent (POKO). The world is moving fast and has become a village. Ali’s contributions are global and the world has recognized him. His audience transcends ethnicity. The minor characteristic differences should not prevent POKO from seeing and the enjoying the the bigger world.

      @Isaiah, I have always wondered whether white and Indian Africans are considered African Americans when they gain U.S. Citizenship….

    Kuna tofauti ya Ali Velshi kuzaliwa Kenya, na Ali Velshi kuwa Mkenya. Ali Velshi sio Mkenya, hana Ukenya na muundo, maumbile, mazungumzo na tabia, katu Ali velshi hana kipengere cha utu unaomtambua yeye kama Mkenya. Ni kwa sababu yeye ameikana nchi aliozaliwa. Hasa baada ya msukasuko wa kisiasa baada ya uchaguzi wa 2007, Ali Velshi alivingira shingo lake asitambuliwe kama Mkenya wakati Wakenya walipokuwa wakishambuliana kwa mapanga. Ali Velshi ni Muindi-Mmarekani. Kuzaliwa kwake katika taifa la Kenya kulikuwa tu bahati mbaya. Ni sampuli ya Wahindi ambao hawajisaili na kujidadisi walikotoka walikozaliwa. Umuonapo akitapatapa katika runingani CNN, bila shaka utamuona mtu malingo na mwenye kiburi.

    Zain Verjee ni Mkenya kutoka jamii ya Wahindi. Mwanamke huyu hujivunia kuwa Mkenya, tena hadharani. Kiswahili akizungumzacho Zain Verjee, ni kitamu na sanifu. Wakati wa mzozo wa matokeo ya uchaguzi wa rais mwaka wa 2007, Zain Verjee alijimbua kama Mkenya halisi kwa kuhatarisha maisha yake ili kuonyesha ulimwengu kilichokuwa kikitendeka katika nchi yake. Ungemuona Zain Verjee akichanganyika na Wakenya wenzake huku akiwasihi viongozi waache kuwatenganisha Wakenya kwa misingi ya kikabila. Huyo ni Zain Verjee. Binti Verjee mzalendo na mpenda nchi yake. Ali Velshi………utambulizi alioupata ni wake na baadhi ya wahindi wenzake ambao wamewabagua Wakenya weusi tangu jadi, kwa matusi kama, ” We konda, konda kabisa, ee majinga kama…” Diposa hajaweza kujitambua kama Mkenya runingani kwa sababu kufanya hivyo ni AIBU kwake.
