What Uhuru told BBC after his meeting with Trump

Africa knows what it wants...

Kenyatta told the press that the meetings were geared towards attaining a win-win partnership.

He stated that unlike the past where African countries seemed to be begging for handouts, the narrative has changed tremendously as the continent is now aware of how much it can offer on the global table.

"There has been dramatic change across the African continent where people are beginning to get a better understanding of themselves, who they are and where they want to be.

"And we are looking at how we can partner with countries across the globe in a partnerships that are not patronising but those that are anchored on win-win positions," President Kenyatta said.

The two Presidents discussed issues touching on security, fight against terrorism, employment opportunities for the youth, trade, and investments.

"The meeting with President Trump was fruitful," Kenyatta said.

First Lady Margaret Kenyatta was part of the delegation that flew to the US.

Mrs Kenyatta held talks with her US counterpart Melania Trump where she informed her about the Beyond Zero campaign focused on improving maternal and child health in Kenya.
