The Speaker of the National Assembly, Hon. Moses Wetang'ula on Wednesday hosted a delegation from Algeria led by the Speaker of the National People's Assembly, Hon. Brahim Boughali.
Speaker Boughali and his delegation were in the country to attend the inauguration of the Fifth President of the Republic of Kenya, H.E. President Dr. William Ruto.
Mr. Boughali hailed Kenya for executing a peaceful transition and for her role in generating indigenous solutions to African problems through peace initiatives within the region.
Their deliberations also focused on other areas of collaboration, such as the education sector, where needy students from Kenya have benefited from scholarships in various universities across Algeria.
The visiting Speaker also took the opportunity to congratulate Speaker Wetang'ula on his election. He extended an open invitation to the Speaker for an official visit to strengthen the strategic partnership between the two sister legislatures.
"Algeria, just like Kenya, has played a huge role at the international stage in pushing for the African agenda both at the United Nations and at the African Union and was among the countries that voted in favour of Kenya's bid for a non-permanent position at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)," the Parliament of Kenya posted on its Facebook page.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
