Uhuru's CS Lands An International Job A Week After Handing Over To Ruto's New Cabinet Secretary

The former cabinet secretary for Tourism Najib Balala has landed an international job a few days after his retirement. Balala has been appointed as the vice president of the Fauna and Flora International (FFI) which is a charity specializing in conserving wildlife around the globe.

The appointment of Balala comes exactly seven days after he handed over the Tourism docket to his successor Penina Malonza after her approval by the Appointments Committee of the National Assembly. The FFI in a statement said that Balala has a lot of experience in the conservation of wildlife and will be therefore a resourceful asset locally as well as internationally.

"On behalf of all of the team at FFI, I am delighted to welcome Honourable Najib Balala as vice-president — he will be a wonderful global ambassador for FFI," FFI CEO Mark Rose said in a statement.

"Hon. Balala has been incredibly influential in the wildlife and tourism sectors in Kenya and across Africa and we are very privileged to be able to benefit from this wealth of knowledge and experience." the statement read further.

After the appointment Balala took to his Twitter page to thank the Non Governmental Organization for appointing him to such a big position when he least expected it.

"Thank you for the appointment, Fauna and Flora International. I am grateful and honoured to have been chosen to serve as FFI's Vice President," he wrote.

Balala has been in the tourism sector for a long time and he has won prizes for his commitment to protecting wildlife. This explains why he was appointed as the president of FFI.
