The President said that Biden is a friend of Kenya whose last visit to the country while serving as Vice President under President Barack Obama helped renew Kenya-USA ties.
“President-Elect Joe Biden is a friend of our country who has visited us in the past and helped in strengthening the strong ties that exist between us and the United States of America.”
“His win therefore presents an even bigger and better platform for our two countries to collaborate more closely for the prosperity of the people of our two nations,” President Kenyatta said.
President Uhuru also termed Biden’s hard-fought win as a demonstration of Americans confidence in his leadership.
“Americans have spoken loudly and clearly through their votes by picking a highly experienced, colorfully decorated and long-serving leader to become their next Head of State.”
“On behalf of the People and the Government of the Republic of Kenya, I congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris for their emphatic win and wish them all the best as they prepare to lead the United States of America into a future of prosperity,” President Uhuru said.
The Head of State further wished the US President-Elect good health, a smooth transition and pledged Kenya’s continued solidarity with the United States of America going forward.
He also applauded Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris for making history by becoming the first woman to occupy the position in American political history.
He termed Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris as a trailblazer and role model whose win will help inspire and embolden millions of young girls across the world to chase and achieve their dreams of greatness and success.
