Nairobi, 28th September 2023
Nairobi County Executive Committee member for Inclusivity, Public participation and customer service Dr. Anastasia Nyalita visited Oloolua forest, Michuki park and Aga khan walk to mark the world tourism day whose theme this year was “ Tourism and Green investment.” Tourism and green investment highlights the need for more and better-targeted investments for the Sustainable Development Goals, the UN roadmap for a better world by 2030.
In line with H.E Governor Sakaja’s Manifesto the City, culture and tourism sub-sector’s mandate is to forge activities that will attract tourists both locally and internationally. The sub sector has also collaborated with the Kenya tourism board and the National museum to ensure that all avenues of tourist attraction are explored and that the residents of Nairobi are informed of what the city has to offer in terms of tourist destinations.
Speaking at Aga khan walk Dr Nyalita said, “as a county we have a lot of activities planned leading up to the annual Nairobi festival which will take place from the 12th to the 17th of December, the festival will provide a platform for residents of Nairobi to show case their talent. We will also have caravans moving from sub county to sub county scouting for talent as we continue to build up the aspect of inclusivity when it comes to talents, in terms of gender and disability.”
She Further stated “As arts, culture and tourism we want to ensure that the vibe of the city is experienced. We are very delighted that you are able to showcase your talents and also the SMEs are able to utilize this opportunity to showcase and sell their products with the county giving them the necessary waivers as we have done today. We will also engage partners so that we can be able to provide more opportunities like this and make Nairobi the best tourist attraction destination.”
Also in attendance was the Deputy Director tourism Susan Mukuhi and I and R models who showcased their talent at Aga Khan walk.
