During a four-day trip to Germany and Belgium, President William Ruto flew back into the nation on Thursday.

Sunday saw the departure of the head of state. Rigathi Gachagaua, the deputy president, welcomed him when he arrived at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

The main goals of Ruto’s visit were to strengthen the collaboration between Kenya and the European Union and to reaffirm Kenya’s commitment to the Kenya-EU Strategic Dialogue.

In order to improve ties between Kenya and Germany, he visited with both German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

At the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, Ruto also gave a keynote speech in which he discussed the difficulties with ensuring energy security in light of the escalating climate problem and the urge for investments in renewable energy in Kenya and Africa.

Kenya looked into a partner with Germany on the youth agenda during the German visit, particularly in terms of vocational education and training.

While in Brussels, Ruto met with Prime Minister Alexander De Croo of Belgium. They spoke about a variety of topics including trade, investments, health, food security and drought relief in Kenya, and climate change.
