Lupita Nyong’o dominated the headlines earlier this year after British supermodel Naomi Campbell was given the gig to promote Kenyan tourism to international travelers.
A serious debate ensued with many asking Najib Balala why our own famous export hadn’t been used to promote magical Kenya?
The cabinet secretary responded by saying that getting to the Oscar-winning actress had been a tall task, otherwise the government would have offered her the job.
Miss Nyong’o on her part denied that she had ever been called by the government. While we might never know the truth between the two, one thing we can see is that it has changed Lupita’s traveling habits.
Lupita who usually keeps a very very low profile when she comes to Kenya has decided to announce to every Kenyan that she is at the coast.
Yep, the thespian who has nary made a public visit to the country the last 8 years decided to reveal her whereabouts, something she hasn’t done since her celebrity status exploded.

Mmm…I wonder why? But I digress. The reason I write this story is how Kenyans have decided to turn her triumphant return promoting her lovely Kenya to speak about Omar Lali-the old man implicated in the death of Keroche heiress, Tecra Muigai.
