One of the most prominent actors of Kenyan descent in Hollywood, Edi Gathegi, has made a mission to help Kenya establish itself as a premier travel location.
He intends to interact with people and organizations who support his goal of promoting Kenya during his stay.
“Edi Gathegi will be around for a few weeks and is open to speaking to serious individuals who care about Kenya, its arts, and culture.”
Today, Edi met with John Chirchir, the CEO of the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB), who expressed his excitement at the meeting “the biggest Hollywood star.”
The two discussed possible areas of partnership in promoting and marketing Kenya’s tourism globally.
Edi, whose family also resides in Nairobi, plans to spend time with them during his stay. In a past interview with Nation, he said, “I’m inextricably bound to my roots. I know exactly where I came from, and you can’t take that out of yourself.”
