Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is the first Kenyan head of State to host a sitting President of the United States; thank him for that, Foreign Affairs CS Amina Mohammed says.
The arrival of the US President for a three day visit in the end undoubtedly reflects well on the Uhuru and Jubilee administration and according to Amina, despite a rocky start, there is more praise than doubt that the President deserves.
Obama arrives at a time when critics had said the current government would never see eye to eye with the US government thanks in large to the fact both Uhuru and his Deputy William Ruto were linked to the International Criminal Court trials but those fears have now been allayed.
" For sure, this is an indicator of how well the Uhuru administration has done to see such a high profile visit come to fruition," she harped.
On whether DP Ruto would still get the 'rough'treatment everyone talks about, Amina was categorical none of it would take place.
" That is not even up for consideration in anyway and I think it has already been addressed in several press conferences by the US side including Ambassador Godec (Robert), " she defended.
Obama arrives in Kenya Friday night.
