Tourism Minister Replaced

And so it begins...

"The Kenyan tourism industry has been taken by surprise with the unexpected announcement that Kenya's tourism minister Nagib Balala has been replaced. A cabinet reshuffle announced yesterday afternoon in Nairobi revealed that Kenya’s Minister of Tourism, Balala been removed from his ministerial post and replaced by a relatively unknown assistant agricultural minister, Danson Mwazo.

Balala was last year elected as Chairman of the UNWTO Executive Committee, a post he is now expected to relinquish.

The moves come ahead of the general election expected to be held in March 2013 but still subject to controversy."

Ooh, be careful - we might get reported for "off-topic" chat again and have three-quarters of the thread deleted ;-)

God forbid anyone should post light-hearted banter on this forum.

Its true the announcement took us by surprise since it was unexpected.

He did a good job for the Tourism Ministry dedicating his time and input. The good work should continue in whichever docket he will be appointed in the future. Welcome on board Hon. Danson Mwazo.
