Just two years after its formation, at the end of the month, the Italian Association of Kilifi County closed in Malindi. It is a great sin and at the same time a defeat for the entire Malindi, Watamu and Mambrui Italian community.
The association, born and lived in the full volunteering of the board of directors, but ultimately of the spouses Giancarlo and Marina Cecchetti who have been the proponents, the soul and the financiers in the first person, has repeatedly proved a support pole, consulting And unique comfort in Malindi, providing information, clarification, translation, clarification services for any problem that concerns Italian resident or holidaymakers in Kenya. Especially the owners of villas or apartments and long-term tourists, especially retired people.
After moving the premises from the AG Complex to the Sabaki Center, alongside the Bar Bar and the consular office (with which he has worked in the last couple of months in a useful and effective way), he hoped that AIKC could gather more members and consents , But it seems that the Malindi Italians do not need services, advice, and unified voice when it comes to asserting the rights of everyone, but then complain about social networks or bars in the town.
With AIKC, also the library available to members, with free Italian books, and the placement office that has allowed many Kenyans to find employment in "muzungu" and many Italians to find a reliable Local worker.
Services carried out with passion and intellectual honesty to which every Italian would have to join, all the more so that they would be 3000 shillings a year to ensure the survival of the association, the expenses of which were mainly and almost exclusively the rent of the premises.
But 40 members, as many as they are left this year, are very little in an area that counts, between fixed and present a few months a year, more than five thousand.
We see that we do not deserve such a luxury and two people available and disinterested as Giancarlo and Marina.
For those who have paid the fee, however, the services will be active until the end of the year.
