President Uhuru Kenyatta returned to Kenya on Monday morning after what the presidency described as “a landmark State visit to Cuba”.

The state visit focused on trade, heritage and health. Health is one of the key pillars of the Big Four agenda of Mr. Kenyatta.

Why it matters: Abandoned and daily attacked and pressured by the United States since President Trump replaced former President Obama whose father was from Kenya and black, Mr. Kenyatta has tried to forge new alliances around the world. His presidential election victory last year was canceled by the court but he won again after new polls were held. But the Trump administration has continued to discredit him, claiming he was turning Kenya into a dictatorship.

“President Kenyatta particularly used the visit to get back on track a wide range of health agreements signed earlier but never implemented. This has paved the way for Kenya to bring in 100 medical specialists – with each county getting at least two – and dispatch 50 doctors to Cuba for specialised training,” a presidential statement added.

The President and his delegation arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport aboard a Kenya Airways commercial scheduled flight shortly before 7.00 a.m.

He was received by Deputy President William Ruto, Chief of Defence Forces General Samson Mwathethe and Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko among others.

Thereafter, President Kenyatta inspected a colourful guard of honour mounted by a detachment of the Kenya Air Force.
