UK Prime Minister Theresa May to visit Kenya

This will be May's first visit to Africa since taking over from David Cameron in July 2016.

While making the announcement on Wednesday, Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma said the two leaders will discuss issues on trade, security and a joint fight against corruption.

The President will seek to secure Kenya’s business interests post-Brexit in addition to proposals that will improve the ease of trading with Britain.

CS Juma said talks are already in high gear to have the United Kingdom visa office re-established in Nairobi to ease the process of acquiring travel documents by Kenyans.

She also added that talks with May will be focused on strengthening the existing security pact between Kenya and the UK.

Positioning Kenya globally

The meeting will come only three days after President Kenyatta’s meeting with U.S President Donald Trump at the White House.

Mr Kenyatta will then travel to Beijing for the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation where he will also meet Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Ms Juma termed the purposes of the meetings as avenues of “positioning Kenya globally.”

“This visit speaks a lot in terms of our place among the community of nations but also about President Uhuru Kenyatta’s global leadership.

“We have in the pipeline quiet a number of Heads of State coming in as well as projected visits by President Kenyatta so I think we’re in for a busy half a year,” she said.
