President Kenyatta spoke during the closed door meeting with leaders of the world’s most developed democracies at the San Domenico Palace Hotel on Saturday and later told Kenyan journalists that the G7 countries will start listening to the African voice on global threats and development agenda.

“One of the key things to have come out of this summit and which was emphasized by the Canadians, the French and the Germans was that it is time to start listening to Africa on issues that threaten the world and the development agenda,” he said at the Villa Saint Andrea Hotel shortly before flying back to Kenya in the afternoon.

Watch the video below as Mr Kenyatta explains the relevance of his trip to Taormina, Italy.

President Kenyatta, who was an invitee to the G7 Summit alongside his colleagues from Nigeria, Ethiopia and Tunisia, said Presidents Donald Trump (US), Emmanuel Macron (France), Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Ministers Theresa May (UK), Paolo Gentiloni (Italy), Justin Trudeau (Canada) and Shinzo Abe (Japan) promised to stop ‘talking down’ to the continent’s leaders on global issues.

“They are in agreement that it is time to stop talking down to Africa and start taking the continent positively.

“It means we will sit, talk and deliberate on issues. Africa is going to step forward to discuss and be part of the solutions to global challenges.

“We will sit with them and make our contribution not as dependents but as partners with them,” he said as he briefed the media on the session with the G7 leaders.
