Renowned political journalist Stephen Letoo, who also serves as the self-proclaimed chairman of the Men's Conference Program has penned a letter extending a warm welcome to King Charles III of Edinburgh and Queen Camilla during their visit to Kenya.

The British Royal couple arrived in Kenya on Monday night and received a cordial reception from Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi and British Ambassador to Kenya, Neil Wigan.

In his communication to the British Embassy, Letoo highlighted the purpose of the Men's Conference Program, stating its ambitions and the nature of its members.

"The men's conference program brings together men from diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to personal growth, leadership, addressing climate change, poverty eradication, and community development.

King Charles III and Queen Camilla's arrival took place at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) shortly before 11 p.m. on Monday night.

Their official four-day visit to Kenya is set to commence on Tuesday, October 31, with the primary aim of celebrating the strong and dynamic cooperation between the two nations and their enduring friendly relations.

During their stay, the royal couple will tour various locations, including Nairobi City County, Mombasa County, and surrounding areas.

As Kenya gears up to commemorate 60 years of independence, the Royal Couple's visit aims to shine a spotlight on the enduring partnership between the UK and Kenya.
