Nairobi - State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu has said President Uhuru Kenyatta will not ask for favours from US President Barack Obama when he meets him in Nairobi.
Esipisu confirmed that President Kenyatta and Obama will hold bilateral talks at State House before signing several agreements between Kenya and the US.
" The meeting will be between two sovereign states that have their own interests.
" Kenya will not be asking for favours from the US, we have been working together as partners for a long time, and this will go on to strengthen diplomatic ties between these two countries," Esipisu said.
He revealed that security and investment will top the agenda when the two leaders meet.
Other matters to be addressed include education, infrastructure, health, taxation and visa extensions with the US.
Obama jets into the country Friday and will be the chief guest at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit which kicks off tomorrow at the United Nation’s offices in Gigiri.
