By Judy Nguta | March 8th 2017
Donald Trump and Uhuru Kenyatta discussed economic partnership and mutual dedication to overcoming terrorism and other regional security challenges through close cooperation. 

US President Donald Trump Tuesday made a phone call to Uhuru Kenyatta, the fourth such call to African leaders since he ascended to the White House.  

During the call on Tuesday afternoon, the leaders reaffirmed the strong bilateral relationship between the two countries. 

“The two leaders discussed our economic partnership and mutual dedication to overcoming terrorism and other regional security challenges through close cooperation.”

“President Trump expressed appreciation for Kenya’s significant contributions to the African Union Mission in Somalia and recognized Kenyan troops’ sacrifices in the fight against al-Shabaab,” read a statement on White House website.   

The two leaders also discussed ways to boost bilateral trade and investment in Kenya and the broader East Africa region.

Trump’s first call to Africa was with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari where they discussed issues of terrorism, and probability of a new deal to help Nigeria "in terms of military weapons."

Trump has also previously spoken to South Africa’s Jacob Zuma and Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt.
