Why Uhuru will leave the country on Thursday
He returns on Saturday
In a statement from State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu, President Uhuru will attend a presidential retreat on financing infrastructure and health that will be held in Uganda.
Manoah said that East African leaders will hold the retreat before attending the East African Community (EAC) summit on Friday where President Kenyatta will speak on Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), arrangements between the EAC and the European Union.
The president will outline Kenya’s path in the arrangements and what he sees as the future in cementing sustainable trade relations between the region & the EU as well as calling for fast implementation of projects, with focus on the agenda of promoting free movement of people across the EAC and the wider African continent.
Affordable health for all is one of President Kenyatta’s Big Four commitments in his second term, alongside affordable housing, enhanced manufacturing and value addition as well as food security and nutrition.
