1 min read

President William Ruto on Friday morning held talks with US Senator Chris Coon, and US Amb Meg Whitman at State House, a meeting that aimed at enhancing Kenya’s relations with the United States to expand trade and investment opportunities for citizens of both nations.

According to the president, the mutually beneficial partnership will extend to climate change mitigation efforts and environmental conservation.

The leaders also discussed global security issues, climate change, and the progressive path of devolution in Kenya.

The meeting with US Ambassador Meg Whitman comes just hours after Azimio leader Raila Odinga lashed out at the US envoy over her remarks on last year’s election.

Speaking at the Devolution conference yesterday, Raila said Whitman should keep off Kenyan affairs.

He said Kenya is not a US colony and should be left to handle its internal affairs.

“Tell the rogue ambassador Kenya is not the United States. Kenya is not a colony of the United States. Keep your mouth while you are here. Otherwise, we will call for your recall back to your country,” Raila said amid cheers from a section of the participants.
