Uhuru leaves Tuesday for two week European, African trip

31 March 2014, 18:14 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will leave the country Tuesday for a two week trip to Europe and some parts of the African continent.

State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said Monday that the president will fly to Belgium, Rwanda, Turkey and Britain where he will discuss regional security, infrastructure, trade and regional integration issues.

The president will head to Brussels Belgium for the European Union- Africa Summit that begins Wednesday and runs for three days.

" He will represent Kenya and the East African Community EAC, Esipisu said in a press conference.

African and EU presidents and heads of state together with officials from the African Union and the European Commission, are expected to meet to update the Joint Africa-EU strategy signed in 2007 and sign a political pact cementing ties.

EU officials say the summit will discuss peace and security, investment, climate change and migration. It will be preceded by a meeting between African business leaders and their European counterparts.

During his visit to Rwanda on April 6-7, the president will attend events to mark the 20th commemoration of the 1994 genocide.

Uhuru will then head to Turkey on April 8-10, where he will make a state visit that will focus on improving bilateral trade.

The president will end his tour in London, where he will hold meetings on trade, while supporting First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, who will run in the Virgin London Marathon on April 13, to raise money for her Beyond Zero campaign that targets improved maternal health and nutrition.

According to Esipisu, the two week stay will also see hundreds of investors travel with the president all at their own cost.

" The president will have a contingent of investors with him who will seek to find new frontiers for the development of trade in the country.
