09 December 2015, 19:23
Nairobi - Despite ridicule over his continued travel outside the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta will travel to Rwanda on Thursday.
The President will tomorrow make the one-day visit to Rwanda to attend the 12th Summit of Northern Corridor Integration Projects (NCIP).
The trip comes in the midst of continued criticism over his travel outside the country, with Kenyans insisting that he takes too may trips outside the country.
He has however stated that the trips are necessary as they allow him to negotiate for key deals which other junior officers cannot be able to land.
State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu stated that the trip to Rwanda was very necessary.
" The leaders will discuss progress in implementation of the projects that
deepen integration and significantly improve intra-regional trade," he said.
" Over the past 2 and a half years, there has been progress in infrastructure development in
the region due to direct involvement of leaders in the NCIP," he added.
The President will be flanked by other regional leaders in the NCIP meeting.
