British High Commissioner Nic Hailey was among those saying farewell to outgoing American Ambassador Robert “Bob” Godec tonight.
Guests at the party, hosted by Gina Din, were treated to a performance by Kenyan band Sauti Sol.
Posting a farewell message on Twitter, Mr Godec said: “As Lori and I leave Kenya we offer a profound asanteni sana to all Kenyans. Serving as US Ambassador has been one of the great privileges of my life. Kenya and Kenyans will always have a big place in our hearts. Kwaheri ya kuonana.”
Mr Godec has also reflected on his last six years in Kenya and welcomed his successor Ambassador Kyle McCarter in an op-ed posted on the US Embassy website.
