Lenin Lumumba moves to Kwara’s PR and Communications unit from Tell-Em

After serving for almost 2 years handling various clients as an Account Manager at Tell-Em PR , Lenin Lumumba has announced his departure from agency to corporate by moving to Kwara, a fintech firm.
Lumumba, who joined Tell-Em from Ogilvy where he was an Account Executive, is joining Kwara in its Marketing department and will be in charge of PR and Communications. His role at Kwara will also entail a lot of Marketing, a skill he is very keen to grow as he’s making efforts to become an Integrated Marketing Communications professional.

During his stint at Tell-Em, colleagues had recognised him as a prolific writer and strategist. His team mates at Tell-Em further describe him as a hardworking and talented content creator who understands the craft and tenets of PR.
Lumumba, who started off as a journalist at the Standard Media Group before moving to Public Relations, was part of the team credited with growing Glovo’s influence in the online delivery space in Africa. He was also the team lead for the agency’s biggest accounts such as Coca Cola beverages Africa and other tech clients. At Ogilvy, he was part of the team that handled the busy but lucrative Safaricom account.

Kwara, which is Lumumba’s new work destination, is a fintech firm that offers a secure, simple and affordable digital banking platform for SACCOs and their members, a segment that is often ignored or excluded by traditional banks.
Kwara aims to strengthen existing member-based financial institutions that serve the 3 billion un- and underbanked people in emerging markets.
Kwara was selected in September 2019 to take part in Google’s Africa Immersion program, a 12-week program to bring expertise from Google and London startups to tech startups in Africa. The program picked 10 startups from a network of tech startups around the world to share their learnings, support and do business with each other.
