The red carpet is out in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, and journalists were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Oscar-winning Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o.
There was excitement among many journalists at the scene when she did arrive.
Ms Nyong’o has been appointed a global ambassador for the wildlife conservation charity WildAid. And she told journalists that she is “proud” of her Kenyan heritage and “part of that heritage is the wildlife”.
She added that she would have loved to have returned home sooner but she has been busy building her career, but “it’s never too late to come home,” she said.
