  1. Today was an amazing day. I have just admired the presentation skills by a lady named as Sumayyah Athmani. Was watching a talk show on K24 TV station for the pacesetters in Kenya, looking at such a young devout moslem lady speaking with super confidence and yet very clear in point deliberations. It was so incredible and captivating. She is such an articulate orator and demonstrated a high sense of intelligence and responsibility i.e. business oriented and yet cares for family obligations. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow, hands up for you Sumayyah, keep it up there. I am neither Kenyan nor a moslem but i have truly admired your sense of style and may God continue blessing you that far. How i wish i would serve your business entity of National Oil Corporation in a professional manner. I am an East African regional tax consultant and felt like i needed to read more about your captivation.

  2. I have been on close watch in regards to the development and rapid strategic growth of The National Oil corporation since the 12/6/2009 the day i first applied for a job.As a silent observer and with courage that one day will work for the corporation,came true as in April 2010.It is from this time that i realized there is great future when working for this organization.By this i mean that one month after deployment i got a letter from 43air school,South Africa to study Piloting which has been my ambition and will be my greatest achievement on earth.I had applied in 2006 while in college.

    With the MD/C.E.O,Managerial team and all leveled staff of National Oil,i see the greatest growth,good customer relations and excellent future business partnership.I believe prosperity of my future has started.
