Azziad on Talanta Hela

At the same time, Azziad Nasenya informed her fans that she has been involved in Talanta Hela affairs since June 2023 when it was disbanded.

According to Azziad her tenure as youth representative in the Talanta Hela Council ceased after a court order called for the disbandment of the entity.

However, the committee was disbanded in June 2023. I’ve not involved myself since,” she stated.

She further added that some of her trips are fully funded by her clients. For instance, regarding the Dubai trip, Azziad noted that it was fully funded by the organisers of the Visit Dubai Compaign.

Azziad who gained public limelight during the Covid-19 period vowed to share receipts to confirm how her adventures are financed.

“Secondly, I would also like to make it clear that my travel to Dubai and other places have been financed by myself, clients, or family, and never, as numerously claimed, by the Government of Kenya. There were allegations that I travelled to Dubai using money meant. for renovating a stadium,” her statement read in part.

“At the time, I was in Dubai recording content for the #VisitDubai campaign, a trip that was fully funded by the client. The receipts are on my socials – smart people can confirm instead of believing rumours.”

Increased calls for accountability

Her statement come amidst increased calls for accountability in various government ministries.
