Netanyahu flies to Nairobi for Kenyatta’s inauguration as president

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is spending Tuesday in Nairobi for the swearing in of President Uhuru Kenyatta for a second five-year term. He will not attend the main ceremony at the Kasarani Stadium out of security considerations, but is invited to the event at the Presidential palace. There, he will join 10 African leaders, with some of whom he has set bilateral meetings, such as the presidents of Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia.  Netanyahu stressed the importance Israel attributes to Africa – “and no less the importance Africa places on strengthen ties with Israel,” when he addressed the Likud Knesset faction Monday night.
