*Kenya cabinet secretary for Tourism Peninah Malonza is reportedly in talks with the Oscar award winner Lupita Nyong’o to serve as the country’s tourism ambassador.

“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,” she explained on Citizen TV on Wednesday, according to Kelebrity.com.

Malonza said her ministry is also reaching out to Kenyan influencers to help promote the country to their followers locally and internationally.

“We have moved into recruiting tourism ambassadors. We’ve realized that there is a high younger generation and therefore we’re reaching them through the young ambassadors, the miss tourism, miss world and whoever is out there we can call an influencer,” she said.
