Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) Nyanza has endorsed Ken Onditi as the Regional Director.

Speaking in Kisumu after his endorsement, the businessman has vowed to strengthen the Chamber at the regional level by delivering a strong, prosperous and financially sustainable future for businesses in his manifesto.

Onditi stated that his policy priorities will revolve around supporting SMEs, agriculture, the blue economy, tourism, advocacy, strategic partnership and Chamber visibility.

“I will support putting in place a dynamic member’s education and awareness programs that are both vital to the individual and the Nyanza national business community’s future,” he said.

Onditi is currently a Director at KNCCI Nairobi County.

Further, Onditi says it is now time to return home and build the Chamber at the regional level.

He received endorsement from Kisumu, Siaya, Homa Bay, Migori, Nyamira and Kisii Counties officials.

“With your voices behind me, I can use the knowledge I have gained from working at KNCCI and my active participation at the Chamber to best represent and implement your business ideas,” he said.

KNCCI heads to polls on July 8th, where the incumbent President, Richard Ngatia, is battling to keep the position.

His deputy, Erick Rutto, is also contesting the Presidency seat.
