Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is back in the country after a successful official visit to Brussels, Belgium, where he attended the 4th Africa-European Union Summit.
A statement from the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) said the President arrived in Nairobi on Thursday evening.
“The plane carrying the President and his entourage touched down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport shortly before 11:00 pm,” the statement read in part adding that the President met Presidents Francois Hollande of France and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda on the sidelines of the Brussels conference.
The President is expected to be the chief guest at the pass out parade of 2,209 regular police officers who underwent training at Kiganjo Police Training in Nyeri County, as it was confirmed by Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo.
President Kenyatta will preside over the occasion despite a court order that was issued to stop the ceremony on grounds that there was corruption during the recruitment exercise.
According to Kimaiyo he had not received the court order stopping the event.
“We are reading about the court order in the media, but we have not been served with the order,” said Kimaiyo adding that he had not seen it.
