The White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will meet with Kenyan leader Uhuru Kenyatta in Washington later this month to discuss security and trade.
“President Donald J. Trump will welcome President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya to the White House on August 27, 2018. Kenya is a vital partner of the United States, and President Trump looks forward to discussing ways to broaden the strategic partnership based on our shared democratic values and mutual interests. The meeting between the two leaders will reaffirm the longstanding relationship between the United States and Kenya as a cornerstone of peace and stability in Africa and the broader Indo-Pacific region. President Trump and President Kenyatta will explore ways to bolster trade and investment between the two countries, while strengthening security cooperation.”

Kenyatta’s visit is set for August 27 becoming the third African leader to be invited to the White House under Trump, after Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi visited last year and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari came in April.
