President Kenyatta to receive EU envoys’ documents

27 November 2013, 12:51

Abuja - President Uhuru Kenyatta will in December receive credentials from the Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Austria and Hungary envoys.

It is alleged that the president did not receive the credentials of the six ambassadors after taking over leadership of the country from Mwai Kibaki over seven months ago, The Star reports.

Some observers feel that President Kenyatta failed to receive their papers because of the EU attitude towards him during the run up to the March 4 polls, but government officials have rubbished the claims and attributed the delay to the president’s busy schedule.

European Union countries had indirectly warned Kenyans against electing a president who was facing charges against humanity at the ICC, saying "choices have consequences," sentiments that were backed by the outgoing French envoy, Etienne De Poncins.

There is a possibility of extending the delay to next year due to the president’s expected commitment during the December festive season. Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho, did not comment on the issue.
