Nic Hailey has said goodbye to Kenya after his time as British High Commissioner comes to an end.

In a Tweet posted this morning, the outgoing diplomat said: “Kwaheri Kenya, it”s been amazing. This is such a special place for my country. The work we do together makes us both more prosperous and secure. I leave so optimistic about this country’s future, and I will be an ambassador for Kenya wherever I go next.”

His deputy, Susie Kitchens said: “End of an era. Thank you Nic for your leadership in making our work matter. Safari njema!”

He will be succeeded by Jane Marriott OBE who is expected to take up her role later this summer.
