Family festival draws 10,000 to Tatu City

More than 10,000 revellers turned up for a fun-filled family festival at Tatu City, featuring top Kenyan musical artists Ben Sol, Khaligraph Jones, Nviiri the Storyteller, Fena Gitu, DJ Adrian and Mwalimu Rachel. The family festival, held for thousands of CCI employees, their friends and family, and residents and workers at Tatu City, was one of the largest family festivals of the year.CCI’s contact centre at Tatu City – the largest in the country – is being developed by Gateway Real Estate Africa (GREA).

The five-story tower is custom designed for CCI, with training facilities and a career centre to welcome 4,60 f0 employees.”Today’s festival is our ‘thank you’ to CCI’s talented call centre specialists who serve global brands from Kenya, primarily in the mobile, technology, telecommunications and financial industry sectors,” said Rishi Jatania, Managing Director of CCI Kenya.

Perminas Marisi, Head of City Management at Tatu City, echoed that the family festival also “celebrated thousands of families, schools, and businesses that call Tatu City home.”CCI’s expansion to Tatu City was spurred by global demand for the kind of highly skilled workforce available in Kenya. The shift to Tatu City will have CCI, the largest international contact centre provider in Africa, create thousands of jobs in the outbound, inbound and webchat multi-channel contact centre.

There was everything for everyone at the festival. Starting from the music arena, which buzzed with Kenyan headliners. The kids’ zone was all in a frenzy with children engaging and exploring different activities, such as mega merry-go-rounds and wall climbing. Attendees were spoilt for the choice of drinks and food available from other mobile units.
