US First Lady Jill Biden To Visit Kenya In February

    According to Foreign Affairs and Diaspora Affairs Cabinet Secretary (CS) Dr. Alfred Mutua, Kenya will host US First Lady Dr. Jill Biden in February.

    Mutua made the announcement on Wednesday on Citizen TV’s JKLive show.

    Mutua made the announcement in response to a question from show host Jeff Koinange, who asked if Kenya plans to host any high-profile dignitaries in the coming months.

    “Next month, we will get high-profile leaders coming to our country. The spouse of the US president will be here in this country,” said Mutua though he did not reveal the purpose of the visit.

    “We will get other leaders coming to our country in the next few months.”

    The CS said at the moment Kenya is an attractive destination for foreign dignitaries owing to its democratic stance.

    He praised Kenya saying it provides an environment that respects human rights and fundamental freedoms.

    “Kenya’s place is high right now. I was invited to the G7 as Kenya’s foreign minister with other ministers because of Kenya’s place in the world and the role we are playing in the peace process because of the democracy that we have,” Mutua said.
