Kenya and Sierra Leone have signed seven bilateral agreements aimed at improving bilateral relations. The creation of a joint commission for cooperation is one of the agreements, while the other six are Memorandums of Understanding on political and diplomatic consultations, trade and investment, wildlife tourism cooperation, gender equality and women empowerment, agriculture, and arts and youth affairs.
The agreements were inked at State House Nairobi during a bilateral meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Sierra Leone colleague Julius Maada Bio.
President Kenyatta stated at the meeting that the two countries’ connections must be strengthened in order for their full potential to be realised and utilised for the benefit of both countries.
The Sierra Leonean leader took the opportunity to express gratitude to Kenya for its role in maintaining peace in his country.
“I am especially glad to be able to fly to Kenya and formally express my gratitude to the commanders, officers, men and women of the KENBATT contingents sent to Sierra Leone,” Julius Maada Bio said, according to the East African.
Prof David Francis, the West African country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, stated that his country expects to gain from Kenya’s economic success.
Prof David Francis says, “Kenya is an economic powerhouse in the East African region, and as such, Sierra Leone may profit from it in terms of commerce, investment, and other industries.”
