Unlike the former president Uhuru Kenyatta, President William Ruto has had frequent visits outside the country for this short time he has been office. He has been to USA, United Kingdom and North Korea among others. For Uhuru, he frequently visited China and Russia, something that the current president is yet to do.
As People Daily reports, the frequent visits by the president could have a positive impact into the country. Political analyst Professor Naituli says that the bilateral talks that the president is having with do Kenya good. That the president is determined to boost Kenya's foreign policy and enhance trade particularly with Western countries.
That what keeps the president pushing is the urge to mobilize resources in the form of grants to revamp the country's poor economy. However, after one year, if the country's economy does not improve, then , Kenyans should judge the president for using taxpayers' money. Meanwhile, he should be given time.
It should be noted that the president said that he does not want to put the country into more loans. That already, the country has a lot of debt to pay and therefore he has to look for other means to get income.
Do you think the president's foreign trips will bear fruits? Feel free to share your views on the comment section.
