Yesterday, British MP Harriet Baldwin met with Labour Party of Kenya leader Ababu Namwamba for bilateral talks on the sidelines of the EU-AU Ministerial meeting in Brussels.

The UK Minister of State for Africa at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Kenyan Chief Administrative Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs discussed matters of mutual cooperation.

Their talks focused on peace and security in the Horn of Africa region and continued support for the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). 

Ms Baldwin also took the opportunity to condemn the recent terrorist attack in on the DusitD2 complex in Nairobi and conveyed condolences to the bereaved.
