Uhuru back from South Africa, visits injured KDF soldiers

17 June 2015, 12:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has returned back to the country from his visit to South Africa for the African Union summit.

The President arrived back in the country at 9.30 AM local time and after an inspection of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport JKIA visited Kenya Defence Forces KDF soldiers recuperating at the Forces Memorial Hospital in Nairobi.

He paid his respects to soldiers who have been injured in the line of duty, fighting the Al Shabaab terror group in both Somalia and in the country.

Whilst at the JKIA, the President directed the Kenya Airports Authority KAA to improve the passenger handling capacity of the international arrivals terminal at the Airport.

The President, who toured the terminal immediately after arriving from South Africa where he attended the 25th African Union Summit, said KAA should undertake all measures necessary to increase efficiency within the next two weeks.

The President went straight to the international arrivals terminal after disembarking from his plane, together with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, Acting Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia, Kenya Airports Authority Chairman David Kimaiyo and the Acting Managing Director of the Kenya Airports Authority Yatich Kangugo.

With the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES taking place next month, in which US president Barrack Obama and a hoard of guests will be arriving in the country, the President says any delays on arrivals and departures will reflect badly on the country.
