2016 Tutu Fellow Dorothy Ghettuba Pala will be chairing the Board of the Kenya Film Commission (KFC) for the next three years. She was appointed to the position by President Uhuru Kenyatta on 3 May 2019. The KFC was established in 2005 to develop a vibrant local film and TV industry, and to position Kenya as a preferred filming destination for sustainable wealth and job creation. The KFC, led by its CEO Timothy Owase, congratulated Dorothy Ghettuba on her appointment on Twitter.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce our new Board Chairperson, Mrs Dorothy Ghettuba Pala, following her appointment by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta. Congratulations on this appointment and we look forward to working closely with you in advancing the Kenyan film industry.”
