Why Kenyans in the US are disappointed as Uhuru Kenyatta arrives in Washington DC

A break from tradition as President Kenyatta arrives in Washington DC for meeting with Trump

In an interview with a local daily, Githae divulged that the President will meet with Kenyans living in the US.

The envoy revealed that owing to the tight schedule during the short visit, it is not possible to organize an interactive meeting between the president and Kenyans living in the US.

The Nation quoted the ambassador stating that “The president expresses his regrets. He would have loved to meet with Kenyans because that is one his best moments whenever he visits abroad”.

The Ambassador clarified that President Kenyatta will spend most of the time meeting his US counterpart where trade regional security, tourism and economy are expected to be part of the agenda.

Kenyans who were looking forward to the session expressed disappointment at missing the interactive sessions that provide them with a rare opportunity to interact with visiting leaders, asking questions and expressing their concerns.

President Kenyatta jetted out of the country on Friday night for the high-profile meeting accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and a host of government dignitaries.

His visit comes barely a few weeks before the launch of direct flights from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to New York.

Shortly after his return, the President will meet UK Prime Minister Theresa May and China’s President Xi Jinping.
