Lupita has been sharing a lot of exquisite photographs of her trip around the country ever since she landed in the country a fortnight ago for a holiday during the Covid-19 pandemic.
She has dominated headlines for last few months after Tourism CS Najib Balala picked British supermodel Naomi Campbell to be the Magical Kenya international ambassador.

The move attracted the wrath of Kenyans on social media, who argued that the 12 Years A Slave deserved the tourism ambassadorial role even as Balala claimed she was unreachable.
At the time, Lupita shared a photo on social media in which she is laughing sarcastically while mocking the Tourism CS for claiming she had been unreachable for the last 5 years.
