President Uhuru Kenyatta is in France for official duties. He went there to sign a loan deal that is worth 180 billion Kenyan shillings. The president was received by the French president, Emmanuel Macron at Elysee Palace.
The Heads of State and his French counterpart witnessed the signing of three bilateral agreements before leading their delegations at a State Banquet hosted in honor of the visiting Kenyan leader.
Among the agreements reached while he was on his official tour in France is a public-private partnership (PPP) for the construction of the Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit highway signed between KeNHA and Vinci Concessions.
The historic highway is one of the largest PPP projects in Eastern Africa. They also agreed about the development of the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) commuter railway line and the 400KV Menengai-Rongai electricity transmission line.
While in France, the president was interviewed by a French Television station called France 24. Marc Perelman asked him various questions among them, the chief Justice advisory to dissolve parliament and who is the preferred candidate for the 2022 presidential elections.
President Kenyatta said that as much as he doesn’t agree with the advisory, he will not talk much about the merits and demerits of the advisory because there is a case in court, and in Kenya people don’t talk about cases that are in court.
The president said that his main aim is to achieve the government agenda and unite the country. When all is said and done, he will talk about his preferred candidate.
His biggest hope is for all leaders to stop the early political campaigns and work with him to achieve his targets.
Uhuru did not commit to supporting William Ruto and chose to speak about the unity of Kenya and how to avoid post-election violence and solve the question of inclusivity.
