VIEW OF GRASS/TREE ON PLAIN STORY: US-born model and Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri is in Kenya to help raise awareness and support around conservation efforts to save rhinos from extinction. Fakhri is best known outside India for her appearance in the popular reality series, ‘America's Next Top Model’s and a small role in the upcoming Hollywood film 'Spy', which stars Jason Statham, Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law. Fakhri posed for photographs with ‘Sudan’, the planet’s last remaining male northern white rhino, and met with managers at Ol Pejeta, a 90,000-acre conservancy in central Kenya. “I think for me it’s a natural connection to nature and animals, so when I got invited by Ol Pejeta to come out here and meet Sudan, I was over the moon like my heart was filled with joy. I said yes right away, please I would like to come down and support and bring awareness to the fact that he’s the last white male rhino, northern white male rhino,” Fakhri said. Sudan and his two female companions are three of the world’s five remaining northern-white rhino subspecies after their numbers were decimated by poaching. Sudan - brought here from a Czech zoo - is a relatively old rhino and hopes that he would be able to naturally procreate with the two females are dwindling. Ol Pejeta’s managers have ramped up and diversified their awareness campaigns and funding drives in recent years. They hope that their persistence will not only result in the survival and protection of wildlife, but also help boost tourist numbers to Kenya that have been adversely affected by travel advisories. Tourism is the East African nation’s second biggest foreign exchange earner, and revenues are critical in the fight here to protect wildlife and millions of jobs in the sector. “One of the greatest pleasures in the world is when I join visitors who are coming here for the first time and you just watch their eyes light up and they see a rhino on the plain for the first time and you just know that it’s an experience they will never ever forget and that’s something I want those stars to communicate to the world so they can come and visit us,” said Robert Breare, Ol Pejeta’s Chief Operating Officer. Ol Pejeta is East Africa’s biggest rhino conservancy, with 106 of the animals under guard here. The area also plays host to other endangered species like elephants whose tusks - like the rhinos’ horns - are also highly prized in the East.

      • KENYA - BEATIFICATION CEREMONY

        STORY: BEATIFICATION CEREMONY LOCATION: NYERI, KENYA DATE: MAY 23, 2015 SOUND: NATURAL WITH ENGLISH & SWAHILI SPEECH SOURCE: MEAACT (MINISTRY OF EAST AFRICAN AFFAIRS, COMMERCE AND TOURISM) DURATION: 2:44 RESTRICTIONS: NONE STORY: Thousands of Catholic faithful, clergy, government officials, residents and visitors gathered in the Kenyan town of Nyeri today (May 23) to witness Africa’s first Catholic beatification ceremony for Sister Irene Stefani, an Italian nun and missionary who lived and died in Kenya. Sister Stefani was known as Aurelia Jacoba Mercede until she joined the Consolata Missionary Sisters and changed her name in 1911. She arrived in Nyeri in 1915 and gained fame over the years for her generosity and extraordinary empathy for the sick, wounded and aged. She died in 1930 at the age of 39, after contracting plague from infected patients that she insisted on treating. Catholic authorities say that reports of her kindness, and a miracle attributed to her intercession, moved Pope Francis in 2014, to approve preparations for her beatification. The event is a critical step towards sainthood for the woman known as “Nyaatha”, which means “person of mercy and compassion” in the local Kikuyu language. She is beloved in Nyeri and its environs, for her selfless service to wounded World War One soldiers and ailing locals alike. “A thing like this makes people come to know that there’s a place called Nyeri, and look how beautiful the place is? We’re proud of it. This kind of thing coming here and to bring the President here, and there are all these people from outside the country, it’s beautiful,” said Justus Mathenge, a psychologist who travelled from Nairobi - about 150 kilometers away - to attend the event. Nyeri’s county government and Catholic Church representatives have put extensive plans in place to not only honor Sister ‘Nyaatha’, but attract visitors to the area, which boasts of several natural attractions like Mount Kenya - Africa’s second highest peak, the Karuru Falls - Kenya’s tallest, the hideouts of Mau Mau fighters, the Aberdare mountain ranges and Treetops Hotel, where Princess Elizabeth was staying when she became Queen of England. “The people who are in Japan, they just take their information from the media. They have never seen how it is in Kenya indirectly. They just see the newspaper, TV, and through the media to take their information. I think it is better for me to tell them, just come to see how it is in Kenya and if they come they will realise that Kenya is a good country for them,” said Makiko Matoya, a Japanese development worker who has been living Nyeri for the last two years, and took time off to attend the historical event. Throngs of entrepreneurs and traders flocked to the grounds of Nyeri’s Dedan Kimathi University, where the event was held, hoping to cash in on the large numbers of faithful, while being fully aware of the event’s significance. “We’ve always heard about the Sister and her good deeds, that’s why we are here so that we can also learn to live like she did, so that we can help each other,” said James Kareri, a photographer doing brisk business at his stall near the the event’s venue. Local authorities - in conjunction with the Vatican - have planned three days of ceremonies that will see Sister Irene’s remains moved from the sarcophagus where they were kept after exhumation in 1995, to their final resting place.

                      Nairobi National Park is adjacent to the Kenyan capital and its airport and east African regional aviation hub, Jomo Kenyatta International. Nairobi is the only metropolis in the world that has a National Park within the city limits. Here the big game of Africa, including lion, leopard buffalo, black rhino, giraffe, hippo and a wealth of birdlife can viewed in the wild a mere 20 minutes’ drive from the city centre and the airport. Another unique feature of the park is that Nairobians, tourists or even transit air travelers have the option of spending just a few hours, a half-day or a full-day in the park due to its close proximity to the Kenyan capital, or even reside overnight inside the park at the Nairobi Tented Camp.
