Yesterday, UK High Commissioner Nic Hailey visited Kenya’s Principal Secretary to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Macharia Kamau for bilateral talks.
The two discussed issues of mutual interest between the two countries.
60-year-old Mr Kamau graduated from the College of Wooster in Ohio with a B.A. in History, Economics and Religion. He also holds a Masters in Education in Administration and Social Policy from Harvard University.
He has had a long career in the service of the United Nations, including with UNICEF and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Africa, the Caribbean and New York.
In May 2016, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appointed Mr Kamau and Mary Robinson, the former president of Ireland, as Special Envoy of the Secretary-General on El Niño and Climate.
Ambassador Kamau was appointed the Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kenya in February 2018 and the following month left his positions at the UN, announcing his departure via Twitter.
