President William Ruto said Thursday the government is engaging other African governments to nurture mutually beneficial relations.
Speaking during the official opening of the Kenya Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, Ruto assured investors that the Government would support them to access investment opportunities across the continent.
The Kenyan chancery in Senegal is the first in Francophone Africa and will serve the region.
Ruto was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing’oei and Kenyan Ambassador to Senegal Purity Muhindi.
At the same function, Ruto announced that Kenya will open an embassy in Rabat, Morocco, later in the year.
“We will continue to push the limits for our investors and businesspeople to access more markets in Africa,” he said.
He noted Africa will account for 25 percent of the world population by 2050, a market Kenya must plan and strategies for.
Later, Ruto met Kenyans living in Senegal.
He told them that the Embassy will help ease services for them and be their link to the government of Senegal and the private sector.
