A Berlin based Kenyan entrepreneur has been appointed by the Southern Sudanese government to the position of special envoy to the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Southern Sudanese President, Salva Kiir, last week in a decree numbered No.324/2016 appointed a Kenyan entrepreneur based in Berlin, Renish Achieng’ Omullo, as the country’s special envoy to Germany. In this capacity, Omullo will be in-charge of furthering Southern Sudanese’s best interests in its relationship with Germany.
Omullo welcomed her appointment by President Kiir and pledged to serve diligently to the benefit of the citizens of South Sudan.
“I am fully focused to do my best to serve well. I take the opportunity to thank President Kiir for the confidence and trust he has bestowed on me,” Renish told the Star Kenya in a phone interview on Saturday.
You might remember Omullo from her work with Celler Brunnenbau GmbH, where she worked as a business development manager. Celler Brunnenbau GmbH, was a waste management company that won the contract with the counties of Kisumu, Busia and Nyeri to help them manage solid waste.
