New CEO for Kenya tourism agency

Jonah T Orumoi has been appointed as acting chief executive officer (CEO) of the Tourism Finance Corporation (TFC).

TFC is mandated, under the Tourism ministry, to facilitate and provide affordable development funding and advisory services for long-term investment in Kenya's tourism industry. The agency provides funding through loans and business advisory services to prospective investors. 

"It is an absolutely good opportunity for me to serve my country. Minister Balala is an excellent worker and under him I shall strive to ensure that TFC is accessible to all stakeholders who require money," Orumoi, who previously worked as Kenya Tourism Board Head of Finance and ICT, said.

He added that he was delighted to join TFC at a time when Kenya's tourism industry is recovering.

"We have the task of ensuring that our efforts as key institutions that support tourism fully back the recovery efforts in a bid to increase bed capacity as well as attract local, regional and international tourists into our country," he said.
