Kenyan investment consultant Steven Nyandiare has landed an advisory role with United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) ruling family.
Nyandiare who has previously worked as strategic liaison personnel on international trades with Africa and around the world has been appointed as a Senior Advisor to Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisai Al-Qassimi, a member of the ruling family of the UAE.
Nyandiare will be the first Kenyan to work in such a senior position for the UAE ruling family, which he terms as an opportunity for the African to showcase their expertise to the world.
“This is a time for African youth to be part of decision-making on Africa’s business and geo-politics. There is an opportunity for Africa and the African youths,” he told a local online publication.
Nyandiare has previously worked as a property business development director, government relations consultant and building international trades between Africa global partners.
He is also a political adviser to many African countries and political leaders.
During the retired President Mwai Kibaki’s era, Nyandiare worked as Representative of the Youth in the African Union (Silencing the Güns Of Africa by 2020) and was honored in 2009 by Kenya’s former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka by being appointed Youth Representative in his office.
