Kenya has tapped British supermodel Naomi Campbell to market the country as a top tourism destination, in efforts to boost recovery of the sector which has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
And indeed, miss Campbell deserves the appointment, in my view. She is more Kenyan than many Kenyans, and truth be told, she has never missed an opportunity to visit Kenya and market the country as an ideal travel destination.
In 2019, the British supermodel posed naked for British Magazine, Vogue, and posted it on her IG account, a post that attracted close to 500,000 likes. If anything, Kenyan international models such as Lupita Nyongo have rarely been seen to be associated in Kenya.
Even more, Miss Campbell has never missed an opportunity to visit the country, making it her favorite holiday destination for some years now.
Truth is, you can never buy loyalty. And Naomi, has proved to be without a doubt loyal to our tourism, to the services and products our tourism has to offer.
In a picture, which we have set as the cover picture for this story, the supermodel poses beautifully dressed in our Kenyan flag colors. And indeed, she just looks amazingly beautiful in it.
We indeed should salute the cabinet CS Najib Balala for recognizing her loyalty and rewarding it.
