Foreign envoys praise President Uhuru for commitment to rule of law
Foreign envoys have heaped praise on President Uhuru Kenyatta days after his swearing-in at the Moi International Sports Complex, Kasarani.
Five new envoys lauded President Uhuru on Friday saying his commitment to the rule of law should be emulated by other leaders.
The envoys also praised the President and his brigade for carrying out peaceful campaigns during the electioneering period despite rising political tensions in the country.
“On behalf of the President and people of Uganda I would like to congratulate you on your peaceful campaign which the whole world has been watching,” said Ugandan High Commissioner to Nairobi, Awere Phibby Otaala.
Ms Otaala added that Uganda looks to Kenya as its main ally and “when Kenya is not happy Uganda will not be happy.”
The new envoys included Awere Phibby Otaala (Uganda), Alison Chartres (Australia), Denys Toscano (Ecuador), Myint Swe (Myanmar) and Wilhelm von Trott (the Sovereign Military Order of Malta).
Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed and Principal Secretary Monica Juma attended the functions.
On his part, the Head of State welcomed them and encouraged them to focus on improving bilateral relations between Kenya and their respective countries for mutual benefit.
