President Kenyatta leaves
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta left Seychelles last night after a three-day state visit.
He was seen off at the Seychelles International Airport by President Wavel Ramkalawan, Vice-President Ahmed Afif, Chief Justice Rony Govinden, National Assembly Speaker Roger Mancienne, ministers and other government officials.
President Kenyatta arrived in Seychelles last Sunday late afternoon at the request of President Wavel Ramkalawan who had extended an invitation to him when they met on the margins of the 35th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union in Addis Abba Ethiopia in February.
During his visit, President Kenyatta held bilateral talks with President Ramkalawan at State House on Monday before witnessing the signing of 10 agreements focused on deepening both the socio-economic and cultural ties between the two countries.
On Monday afternoon, he addressed an extraordinary session of the National Assembly, visited the Botanical Garden and took part in a banquet at the Eden Bleu hotel on Monday night.
Yesterday morning he flew to Praslin to visit the Vallée de Mai, one of two United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) world heritage sites in Seychelles.
