Uhuru recalls struggle of US trip in his Amherst College days

President Uhuru Kenyatta has spoken about the struggles he underwent while studing in Amherst Massachusetts, United States.

President Kenyatta was a student there between 1981 and 1985 where he studied Economics, Political Science and Government.

He referred to his time in university while addressing a gathering of business and corporate leaders in New York at an event held by national carrier Kenya Airways.

The president told of how he had to make multiple connecting flights and long bus rides to get to college.

He however said that the usually long trip should now be easier as KQ prepares for direct flights between the two countries - the first of which will be a New York - Nairobi trip on October 28, 2018.

The flight is expected to take 15 hours.
