Uhuru congratulates Trump, invites him to visit Kenya
President Uhuru Kenyatta has invited US President Donald Trump to visit Kenya hours after he was sworn in.
During his inauguration, Trump promised to fight for America and to ensure it reclaims its “lost glory”.
“I take this opportunity to invite you to visit Kenya at your earliest convenience,” Uhuru said via twitter on Friday night.
Uhuru congratulated Trump on his new responsibility and assured him of Kenya’s support.
“As you take office, I wish you success and assure you of my support. Accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration,” Uhuru said.
He said Kenya and United States of America have enjoyed warm and cordial bilateral and diplomatic relations for more than half a century.
“These relations are anchored on common democratic values and a number of framework agreements that we have concluded over time,” he said
Uhuru said the two countries have worked on existing and creating new trade and investment opportunities in the region.
“In this regard, we look forward to the commencement of direct flights between Kenya and the United States of America,” Uhuru said.
The Kenyan president further congratulated former US president Barrack Obama for his successful completion of his term in office.
“It is during your eight-year tenure, Excellency, that relations between Africa and the United States of America flourished even more,” he said.
Noting that the people of Kenya cherish his Kenya visit, Uhuru said Kenyans still remember his assurance to work with the continent after his Presidency.
“In this regard, I would like to extend invitation to you to visit Kenya at your earliest convenience. Accept my best wishes for your good health and assurances of my best considerations,” Uhuru said.
During Trump inauguration, he said America will succeed not because of which party controls the government but whether people’s interest are put a priority.
Trump urged his critics and competitors to openly debate and differ but pursue peace and unity.
Trump was inaugurated amid scattered protests in Washington and other parts of the world.
Masked activists ran through the streets smashing windows with hammers at a McDonald’s restaurant, a Starbucks coffee shop and Bobby Van’s Grill steakhouse several blocks from the White House.
Trump, 70, takes over a country divided after a bitter election campaign. A wealthy New York businessman and former reality TV star, he will set the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad.
