President Uhuru Kenyatta is the fourth President in Africa to get on the exceptional list. The special list contains a list of Africa Presidents Donald Trump has talked to in his time as President.
This comes after the United States President Donald Trump hinted that he will call President Uhuru for an exclusive talk.
Although what the two are going to talk about has not been revealed, it is a sign that Trump has Kenya and its leaders on his mind.
But according to BBC, Trump and Uhuru will talk about the ongoing drought that was recently declared a national disaster, Somalia and regional security among other things.
Many Kenyans have expressed fears that Kenya will be disadvantaged under Trump’s presidency. Some thought that there is a sour relationship between the United States of America after Trump assumed office.
This presents a good opportunity for President Kenyatta to share his thoughts with Trump in a bid to ensure that Kenya’s relationship with the US is strengthened.
It will also help us as a country to find a lasting solution to security threats by Al-Shabaab militia.
According to many Kenyans, this talk will clear speculations that the Government of Kenya has fallen out with the US.
Meanwhile, Trump earlier on talked to the president of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, South African president Jacob Zuma and the president of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari.
