Here Is What Has Kept President Uhuru Kenyatta Abroad For Over A Week

Kenyans are patiently waiting for the return of President Uhuru Kenyatta who jetted out of the country on Monday, October 4 and promised he will be giving a detailed response on the Pandora Papers exposè when he lands back.

Uhuru's trip began with a visit to Ethiopia where he joined other Heads of state for the inauguration of Ethiopian Prime Minister Ebiy Ahmed before he flew to Barbados where he signed three bilateral agreements for Aviation, environmental conservation, trade and investment.

It has now been established that President Kenyatta is set to spend a further two days in the United States after arriving there on Sunday, October 10 and will be chairing a United Nations Security Council high-level open debate on diversity, state-building and peace with the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit releasing a statement to confirm this engagement.

Ambassador Martin Kimani who is Kenya's Permanent Representative to the UN stated that the country's role to the UN security council was to offer solutions and ideas to global peace and security in areas such as the Horn of Africa and the Sahel region.

"The Security Council is a body that has the mandate to solve major challenges, but for many reasons has been unable to do so. We have ideas on how to do that, we have experience in building peace in our region and we bring those ideas and perspectives to the Council. Kenya is suggesting new innovations on how to approach particular security situations,” Ambassador Kimani noted.

Uhuru will also hold bilateral talks with UN secretary-general Antonio Guteress and witness the signing of a trade agreement between Kenya's private sector and American companies.
