Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has been left smiling after one of his cabinet secretaries landed an international job exactly one week after handing over to the new CS appointed by William Ruto.
Former cabinet secretary for Tourism Najib Balala announced to Kenyans on Thursday that he has been appointed as the vice president of the Fauna and Flora International (FFI) which is a non governmental organization dealing with the conservation of wildlife around the globe. Balala thanked the stakeholders of the agency for considering him for the job 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." Balala said in a tweet.
The FFI was also happy to have Balala as their vice president. The CEO officially welcomed him to the team and wished him a successful stay among them.
"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," CEO Mark Rose said.
Balala has served as the cabinet secretary for tourism throughout president Uhuru Kenyatta's regime and during this time he got a lot of international exposure. He has won several prizes for his passion in wildlife conservation and this is one of the reasons he has been selected for the post.
