“Hearty congratulations Your Excellency and Dear Brother on your re-election for a second term. Your win is an affirmation of the high confidence your fellow countrymen and women have in your leadership,” President Kenyatta wrote.
He assured President Macron of Kenya’s commitment to continue working with France for the common good and prosperity of the two Republics, and wished him good health and a successful tenure.
“Your Excellency, Kenya remains steadfast in its commitment to continue working with your administration for the progress of the people of our two nations.
“As you settle into your second term in office, I wish you good health and success as you steer your beloved country to new heights of prosperity,” President Kenyatta wrote.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
