There has been a great collective response from all lovers of Kenya, tourism workers, Kenyans and foreigners, residents and citizens who have joined our appeal to Italian institutions to request the reopening of tourism from Italy to Kenya.
In little more than a day between the social pages and the youtube channel of Malindikenya.net are already almost 1000 subscriptions to our appeal addressed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Luigi Di Maio and the main members of his staff.

Yesterday, at the request of many Kenyans who work in tourism especially on the Kenyan coast, we re-proposed the appeal also in English, to show to the competent bodies and to the Italian and Kenyan national media that there are many people who hope for a prompt reopening of tourism to Kenya, even to the limit only to vaccinated people.
In the meantime, the social networks linked to Italy-Kenya, which have a total of more than 100,000 members, have taken up our appeals. We particularly thank, in addition to our Facebook groups "Italians in Kenya" and "What's best in Kilifi County", also the groups "Lovers of Africa", "Sickness of Africa in Kenya and beyond", "Donamasai" and "Expats in Kenya".
In a few days, when we will reach a consistent number of subscriptions, we will send the names to the Italian press agencies, hoping that they will accept our "cry of alarm" for an entire category of compatriots who are suffering the effect of the closure of Italian tourism in places dear to thousands of citizens and even more Kenyans who, due to restrictions, are in desperate conditions of poverty and are at home without work and without a salary to feed their families.
We continue our campaign, thinking that we are in the right and that if our country is gradually returning to normality, we cannot see how it cannot also do so by allowing those who have interests, habits and pleasure to return to Kenya to do so in compliance with the rules.
We will continually update you on the developments of this initiative made in the interest of all.
The situation starts to get serious. The drought and the decline of tourism on the Kenyan coast have created a terrible mix of poor harvests and lost earnings that has devastated entire families of inland villages.
