Jill Biden, the First Lady of the United States, will go to Kenya for three days starting on Friday, February 23.
According to a statement issued on Thursday by First Lady Rachel Ruto, Jill Biden will place a greater emphasis on fostering ties between the two countries during her visit.
“Dr Jill Biden is visiting Kenya from Friday, February 24th, to Sunday, 26th February 2023, to strengthen America’s partnerships with Kenya and the African continent, and advance shared priorities between America and Kenya.
“Dr Biden will focus on women’s economic empowerment projects and will visit the joyful women program, where she will get a chance to experience table banking; a transformational economic empowerment model championed by Her Excellency Mama Rachel Ruto, which operates under Mama Doing Good Organization,” the statement read in part.
This trip is a follow-up to the U.S.-Africa Leaders’ Summit, which was held in December 2022 and featured a two-day program hosted by Dr. Biden for the First Ladies of Africa in attendance.
On Friday, a portion of the JKIA will be blocked while she is in Kenya.
“JKIA will be facilitating a VVIP movement in the course of this month. Security agencies in completion with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have directed that: Terminal two should be cleared of any aircraft and vehicles on Friday 24th February 2023 from 1100 hours to 1700hrs local time. Terminal two should also be cleared of any aircraft and vehicles on Sunday 26th February 2023 from 0600 hours to 1800 hours local time,” KAA said in a statement.
