President Uhuru Kenyatta was Monday afternoon received by King Phillipe at the Royal Palace in Brussels at the start of his two-day official visit to the Kingdom of Belgium and the European Union.

The President, who is accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Raychelle Omamo (Foreign Affairs), Betty Maina (Trade) and Aden Mohammed (EAC), held private talks with King Phillipe. During the two-day visit, the President is scheduled to meet the President of the European Council Charles Michel to discuss Kenya-EU relations and address a Kenya-Belgium business forum.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has announced that the government will admit all beneficiaries of the government-sponsored Elimu scholarship program to boarding schools.

Magoha who visited some of the beneficiaries at the Bangladesh slum in Mombasa said no beneficiary will be allowed to study in a day school and those that have admission letters for day schools will be readmitted to a full-time boarding school.

Mombasa County Commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo has cautioned residents of Mombasa against open disregard of guidelines put in place to curb the spread of covid-19.

Kitiyo says the locals must strictly observe Covid-19 protocols if the county must reverse the current trend where the number of new infections has been on the rise.

The national government administrator, who is also the co-chair of the County Covid-19 Response Committee, is concerned that the number of positivity cases might surge in the coming month, making it compulsory for residents to stringently continue practicing Ministry of Health guidelines on covid-19.
