VIDEO: Why Kenyan President William Ruto has left the country

Published

on

Kenyan President William Ruto departed the country on Thursday afternoon for official visits to Tanzania and Zimbabwe. His first stop will be Tanzania, where he will participate in celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of the union between mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar. Following this, President Ruto will undertake a two-day State Visit to Zimbabwe, aimed at bolstering political, economic, and socio-cultural relations between Kenya and Zimbabwe.

A highlight of the visit will be President Ruto’s role as the chief guest at the 64th Zimbabwe International Trade Fair in Bulawayo. The visit is intended to underscore the significance of international trade fairs and forums in driving economic development, industrial growth, global connectivity, and job creation.

According to State House statements, the visit will further strengthen the already robust bilateral relations between Kenya and Zimbabwe. This will be achieved by elevating the current Joint Permanent Commission for Cooperation at the ministerial level to a Bi-National Commission at the Head of State level.

The visit will culminate in the signing of seven bilateral cooperation agreements covering various areas such as health, defense, investment, education, transportation, and capacity building in public service.

During his visit, President Ruto is scheduled to meet with his Zimbabwean counterpart, Emmerson Mnangagwa, to advocate for increased air connectivity between the two countries. This effort aligns with the objectives of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA) and the Tripartite Alliance Free Trade Area.
