President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, Thursday evening to attend the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
On arrival at the Kigali International Airport, President Kenyatta was received by senior officials of the Rwandan Government, Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo and Kenya's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Manoah Esipisu.
CS Omamo arrived in Kigali ahead of the President to attend the pre-CHOGM Foreign Ministers' meeting, among a host of other pre-summit engagements.
This year's CHOGM brings together delegates from the 54 Commonwealth member states to discuss and address global issues and Commonwealth priorities.
The summit, whose theme is 'Delivering a common future: connecting, innovating, transforming', has also attracted over 5,000 participants from government, business and civil society.
Since Monday, June 20, Commonwealth leaders have been flocking to the Rwandan capital for the global summit, which was initially to take place in 2020 but was twice postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
