Councilman Kwame Kenyatta is home recuperating after having several medical procedures, including surgery to remove his gall bladder. In an exclusive interview with WWJ’s City Beat Reporter Vickie Thomas, Kenyatta says things did not go as planned, which he says will extend his time away from office.

    he will be missed – with so many new members, his institutional memory is sorely needed. I hope he will return to Council soon.
