The top US Diplomat is scheduled to address a Press Conference at the Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel in Nairobi at 6.00pm.

In his speech earlier this week at George Mason University, USA, Mr Tillerson said the US has “a longstanding partnership with Kenya.”

The Secretary of State will be in the country until Monday March, 12.

He is also scheduled to tour Djibouti, Chad and Nigeria.

This is the first time a senior high ranking official from US President Donald Trump’s administration has visited the country.
