This State initiative, fifty years after the start of Kenya’s first international convention centre (KICC), is expected to promote the growth of conference tourism, hospitality, and event and aviation industries, adds the statement.

At the moment, the Bomas of Kenya is a cultural center in Langata that features traditional villages from various Kenyan tribes.

The facility houses one of Africa’s largest auditoriums, which has been used as the National Tallying Centre for presidential elections since 2013.
