The Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage, Peninah Malonza, has today morning launched the Swahili version of “The Governance of China,” authored by none other than the President of the People’s Republic of China, His Excellency Xi Jinping. With the objective of enhancing mutual understanding and cultural exchange between China and Africa, the event served as a beacon of diplomacy and unity.
Addressing the audience, Hon. Malonza highlighted the significance of “The Governance of China” in promoting mutual comprehension between Africa and China. The book, she noted, provides a portal into China’s corridors of power and wisdom, fostering a tapestry of shared insights that benefits not only Africa but also the global community at large.
The occasion also underscored the strong cultural ties between Kenya and China. Hon. Malonza praised the flourishing bonds, emphasizing the power of cultural harmony in nurturing understanding between nations. The nurturing of Kiswahili in China was hailed as a diplomatic triumph, symbolizing not just linguistic appreciation, but a bridge towards stronger relations, trade, and tourism between East Africa and China.
Furthermore, Hon. Malonza celebrated the establishment of a cultural center in Nairobi, endorsed by her Ministry. This initiative envisions a space where cultures converge, knowledge flows, and friendships bloom, enhancing the vibrant people-to-people dialogue between the two nations.
The event was graced by esteemed guests, including Mr. Hu Heping, Executive Deputy Head of Publicity Department of the Central Committee of CPC and Minister for Culture and Tourism; Mr. Zhou Pingjian, the Chinese Ambassador to Kenya; and Mr. Du Zhayuan, President of China International Communications Group.
