KTB denies organising, funding Chris Brown’s concert at Mombasa Golf Club
The Kenya Tourism Board has distanced itself from involvement in organising the visit of American pop star Chris Brown. The concert called MombasaRocks was held at the Mombasa Golf Club on Saturday. About 2,500 people attended. Acting KTB CEO Jacinta Nzioka-Mbithi in a statement said they did not fund it. “KTB was not involved in any arrangements for the visit by Brown,” she said. Mbithi said the official organisers of the concert are Walee Wasee Ltd, who approached KTB, like many other corporate institutions, through the Mombasa governor’s office and requested support. She said KTB through the office of the Mombasa governor recommended the organisers to hoteliers and airlines to provide support in kind by providing services. “This would be in addition to publicising the event through various social media platforms.We wish to clarify that no financial commitment has been put into this event by KTB,” it reads.
