President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday at State House, Nairobi, received credentials from China’s first female ambassador to Nairobi Ms Sun Baohong.

Ms Sun was among three new ambassadors who have recently been posted  to Kenya. The diplomats also included Sri Lanka’s Commissioner-designate Weerawardena Sunil Dharmasena De Silva and New Zealand’s non-resident ambassador-designate Mark Ramsden, who will reside in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

President Kenyatta told Ms Baohong that Kenya had enjoyed a strong mutual understanding with her predecessor, Dr. Liu Xianfa, and hoped that the partnership between the two countries will continue during her term in Nairobi.

On her part, the new ambassador pledged to use her new position to enhance Sino-Kenyan Relations to further promote the existing strategic partnership and deepen ties between Nairobi and Beijing.

Ms Baohong, the 15th Chinese Ambassador to Nairobi is also her country’s permanent representative to two global institutions-United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Human Settlement Programme (UN-Habitat).

China and Kenya have for many years enjoyed mutual collaboration in various areas including infrastructure development and manufacturing.

Kenya is keen to tap into Chinese investments in the manufacturing sector by harnessing Beijing’s technical prowess, capital and experience to promote industrial growth as outlined in the Vision 2030 blue-print.

VIDEO: Angry pastor warns members against ‘seducing’ other attendees with their ‘near-naked’ dresses

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

A pastor whose name we are yet to establish is warning his congregation against going to church while scantly dressed saying by so doing, they are seducing other members. “This is unacceptable,” he says, adding that even the guests at the royal wedding were all  “fully dressed.”

I saw all the stars who used to go naked were well covered, he adds.

“Today we have almost naked people singing on the pulpit, seducing the members of the church.”

The pastor is cheered wildly when he declares that neither fame nor money can save humanity.

“Whether you are a Hollywood star or whoever you are, nothing can save you except Jesus Christ.”
