President Paul Kagame has arrived in Kenya where he has met with President-elect Dr. William Ruto with whom they discussed the deep bilateral relations between Kenya and Rwanda, and much more going forward.

Kagame arrived in Kenya in the evening of Monday 12th September 2022 to attend the inauguration of Dr. William Ruto, the country’s president-elect who will be inaugurated on Tuesday 13th September 2022.

Upon arrival at the airport, Kagame was received by Kenyan officials including the country’s designate-ambassador to Rwanda, Peter Mundia Githiora.

Following the meeting with Kagame, Ruto expressed willingness to promote bilateral relations for the interests of both countries’ people.

"Kenya and Rwanda have a long established relationship based not just on geography but mutual interests and long standing partnerships on economic and security issues. We will seek to build and expand our cooperation for the mutual benefit of the citizens of our countries," he tweeted.

The inauguration of Ruto will take place today at Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi.

Over 60,000 citizens are expected to attend the ceremony in-person while others will follow it via television. Meanwhile, over 2500 dignitaries to grace the event in Nairobi include 20 Heads of State and Government.

Ruto was elected recently with 50.4% votes over his rival Raila Odinga who obtained 48,9%.

He will be serving as the fifth Kenyan President after the country’s Independence.

Both Heads of State have pledged to deepen bilateral ties.
