The EPI Secretariat is delighted that Mrs Margaret Kenyatta, First Lady of Kenya, has agreed to serve on the Board of the new EPI Foundation, which will be led by the former President of Botswana, Ian Khama. Mrs Kenyatta (pictured centre) and Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife Najib Balala (right of First Lady) met the EPI’s John Stephenson, Keith Roberts and Dr Winnie Kiiru in Nairobi, and discussed how the Foundation can help EPI Member States secure the finance to implement National Elephant Action Plans (NEAPs). The First Lady of Sierra Leone, Fatima Maada Bio, will also serve on the Board.
