Lifting the lid on his engagements in Korea, the President explained during an interdenominational church service in Kimilili, Bungoma, that he will witness the signing of several significant deals.

"Today I will be jetting to Korean for three issues. When I was there last year there are some things that we agreed and so I am going to bring that money," the President explained.
