During the dinner, Macron pointed out that he believed in Kenyatta’s vision for uniting Eastern Africa.

“We do believe in your strategy of building a new vision to bring peace and stability not only for Kenya but for the whole region.

“I want France to be part of your regional agenda. You are a champion of regional integration and we support you,” remarked Macron.

Macron made history by becoming the first French president to ever visit the country.

The 41-year old president revealed that France and Kenya had signed deals worth three billion Euros.
