On Wednesday, Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta received the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, H.E. Felix Tshisekedi, at State House, Nairobi.
President Tshisekedi’s visit was aimed at strengthening ties between the two countries.
Kenyatta assured President Tshisekedi of Kenya’s commitment in helping the DRC achieve political stability.
Kenya has learned valuable lessons from past political tensions, which the country is willing to share with the Great Lakes nation, Kenyatta said.
He noted that Kenya will partner with Congo in capacity building by offering training opportunities to Congolese public servants in Kenya’s training institutions such as the Kenya School of Government.
On Thursday, Kenyatta bid goodbye to his friend at the close of a 2-day official visit.
He said Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo have agreed to strengthen the existing bilateral relations, for the benefit of the citizens of two countries.
Tshisekedi is currently on his first foreign tour since taking office; the three-nation tour started in Angola, followed by Kenya and will conclude with a stop in Congo Brazzaville.
