US First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is expected to make a high profile visit to Kenya in February.
Foreign Affairs and Diaspora Affairs Cabinet Secretary (CS) Dr. Alfred Mutua made the revelation on Citizen TV’s JKLive show on Wednesday.
Mutua made the announcement in response to a question posed by show host Jeff Koinange who asked the CS whether Kenya expects to host any high-profile dignitaries in the coming months.
“Next month, we will get high-profile leaders coming to our country. The spouse of the US president will be here in this country,” said Mutua.
The CS did not however reveal the purpose of First Lady Jill’s visit to Kenya .
“We will get other leaders coming to our country in the next few months.”
CS Mutua said Kenya is an attractive destination for foreign dignitaries owing to its democratic stance which provides an environment that respects human rights and fundamental freedoms.
“Kenya’s place is high right now. I was invited to the G7 as Kenya’s foreign minister with other ministers because of Kenya’s place in the world and the role we are playing in the peace process because of the democracy that we have,” he said.
