Sierra Leon President Julius Maada Bio was welcomed by his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta today in Nairobi. The two are expected to hold diplomatic talks to see how the two countries can work together.
President Bio arrived in Nairobi, Kenya, today on a five-day tour. He was received by Kenya’s CS for Foreign Affairs Ambassador Rachelle Omamo among other government officials.
Julius Maada will start his bilateral talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya. The talks are expected to result in the signing of seven memoranda of understanding, which will strengthen relations between Kenya and Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leone President will also be one of the chief guests at the Madaraka Day Celebration on June 1st, a holiday that is used to commemorate the day Kenya became a republic.
This year’s Madaraka Day will be the last for President Uhuru Kenya as he is set to finish his last term in August. Uhuru has kept off from the current political campaigns. And as he aims to leave a positive legacy after bumpy relations with his deputy, the president will use this celebration to preach unity and coexistence.
Preparations are already underway for Madaraka as Interior PS Karanja Kibicho led a committee to organize the celebrations.
