Uhuru invites British PM Cameron to visit Kenya
07 September 2015, 15:33
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked British Prime Minister David Cameron to visit Kenya early 2016.
The invitation was made July 22, just a few days to the visit to the country of US President Barack Obama.
Uhuru said that Kenya needed to once again reconnect with the UK and seek to improve its already long standing relations with the country, something that an official visit would do.
" Kenya and Britain have had a longstanding relationship which will be further boosted by a visit," he said in the letter seen by News24.
It is not yet clear whether the UK has responded to the letter.
UK Ambassador to Kenya Christian Turner did not respond to News24's queries on the matter.
If the visit does materialize, it will be another feather in Uhuru's cap, as he would have hosted both the US President and British PM during his tenure.
The move will also be a rubber-stamp to Uhuru's presidency, once shunned by the west due to his association with the International Criminal Court ICC.
