John Kerry’s visit to Kenya in the wake of TICAD is suspect!
By DrNjenga Solomon | August 21st 2016
To Kerry and US cronies: we know your game! Kindly keep off USA’s archaic schemes to dissolute Kenya’s progressive agenda. It’s not by coincident that USA Secretary of State John Kerry is visiting Kenya at the wake of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD-VI) Summit! His coming is by design and it’s suspicious!
Whereas TICAD-VI plan is set to discuss some thematic issues that Africa has been facing which include: industrialization, health, and social stability, among other things, I suspect it’s by design that Kerry’s visiting Kenya a time as this when we are expecting an international delegation this week – TICAD! I suspect that he has been sent by US President Barrack Obama to remind Kenya that decisions have consequences! Suspect still, Mr. Kerry plans to also meet with Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed and other regional foreign ministers to dissolute Kenya’s plan of associating with South. His meeting here again is suspect! In fact, intelligence and diplomatic sources have indicated that the move by Mr. Kerry to visit Kenya on August 2016 is part of efforts to push for major shift in the way things are done locally. Washington feels major agreements reached with Nairobi last July when President Barack Obama visited are yet to be implemented.
Truth be told, TICAD is set to contribute to the facilitation and promotion of high-level policy dialogue between African leaders and Africa’s development partners on issues pertaining to economic growth, trade and investment, sustainable development, human security, peace and stability and government.
