Obama’s visit to boost Kenya-US partnership

20 July 2015, 14:01 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The visit by President of United States of America, Barack Obama to Kenya is an indication of solid partnership between the two countries, Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has said.

Gethenji said the two countries have been partnering majorly in trade and security sectors.

Speaking in his constituency after a church service at Ngooru Catholic Parish, Gethenji said Obama’s visit will strengthen partnership between Kenya and US in the fight against terrorism.

“Since the 2013 Westgate terror attack, US has been very supportive to Kenya and we expect President Obama to reaffirm his country’s commitment to fight terrorists mostly at the horn of Africa,” said the MP, who is also chairman of Security and Foreign Relations Committee in the national assembly.

Kenya and US individual interests to each other are overlapping, Gethenji said, since Obama’s visit will also promote the two countries economic status mostly industrialization and tourism sectors.

Gethenji further asked international organizations to support AMISOM troops in Somalia in eradicating the Al Shabaab terror group.

“AMISOM troops are in a special mission of stabilizing Somalia. They need moral and any other kind of support,” he stated.

Obama is expected to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Nairobi at the end of this week.

He will also meet President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government officials as well as the opposition leaders during the three-day visit.
