The High Commission has the honour to inform that His Excellency Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta CGH, President of the Republic of Kenya, will be visiting the United Kingdom to attend the London Somalia Conference on 11th May 2017.
His Excellency the President was looking forward to meeting with the Kenyan diaspora community during the visit, like it was in 2013, on the sidelines of the conference. We, however, regret to inform you that the time which had been allocated has been taken up by another unforeseen session of the Somalia Conference and related side events.
In view of this unanticipated development, it will now not be possible to meet with the Kenya Community at the time, venue and in the format, that had been arranged.
Efforts are, however, being made for the Head of State to at least meet with a few (20) representatives of the diaspora community. We are working on this using registered diaspora associations and other avenues. We do, however, acknowledge that this provision is not exhaustive and has the inherent challenge of selection of representatives acceptable to the entire diaspora community notwithstanding the criteria used. We welcome suggestions and also sincerely thank you for your understanding and patriotism.
