Government In Talks With Lupita In An Effort To Market Kenyan Tourism

Kenya’s Tourism Cabinet Secretary Peninah Malonza just revealed that Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o might soon take up the role of marketing the country’s tourism sector.

It is kinda hilarious that it is almost 3 years later and the Kenyan government is apparently still trying to get hold of award-winning Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o.

The CS revealed this on Wednesday during an interview on Citizen TV.

According to her, the ministry is on a new project where they hope to bag a couple of high-profile celebrities and influencers who are currently flying the Kenyan flag higher than it has been over the years to help push the country’s tourism sector to a bigger global market.

Speaking during the interview the Ms. Malonza said

“I have been trying to reach out to Lupita and I think we’re at some engagement and I believe soon she will come on board to market Kenya.

We’re also going a notch higher to reach out to influencers and heroes like Eliud Kipchoge, one of our influencers,”

Doesn’t sound so promising so I’m low-key kind of waiting for Lupita’s response in regard to this.

Remember back in 2021 when the then Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala appointed British high-profile veteran model Naomi Campbell as the Magical Kenya International Tourism Ambassador?
