CS Mutua: Kenya Neither Leaning East nor West. We Are World Leaning

2 mins read

Foreign Affairs CS Dr. Alfred Mutua says Kenya’s Foreign Policy is World Leaning for the benefit of the citizens of Kenya.

”In the last one year, Kenya’s Foreign Policy has been guided by the need to empower the Kenyan people. Our policy is neither leaning East nor West, our policy is world leaning for the benefits of our people,” Dr. Mutua told the press in Nairobi.

Speaking on Tuesday to the members of the Fourth Estate upon return from the US where he was part of President William Ruto’s entourage, the Foreign Affairs CS noted President Ruto has in the past one year used his international travels to seek greater economic opportunities for the Kenyan people.

While in the USA, President Ruto met influential captains of various industries, including global tech giants that are shaping the world.

”During the recent visit to the United States by the President, Kenya signed into the Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC), agreement that committed to grant Kenya USD 60 Million to improve public transport in Nairobi. This will ease traffic jams in Nairobi, especially in Gikomba and Kamukunji areas,” Dr. Mutua noted.

He further elaborated that Kenya’s participation at the UN General Assembly has not only provided the country with an essential platform for the advancement of the country’s foreign policy and objectives but also contributed to a safer, secure, and prosperous Africa.

”As a Chief Diplomat and primary driver of Kenya’s Foreign Policy, President William Ruto has continued to build on the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA) philosophy as the anchor upon which Kenya’s Foreign Policy is reliably anchored,” CS Mutua said.
