CS FRED MATIANG’I FORCED TO RUSH TO MOMBASA
President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived back in Kenya and landed in Mombasa after a successful visit to the UK.
The president’s plane landed in Mombasa instead of JKIA forcing security chiefs and other top government officials to fly there to receive him.
The plane carrying the president touched down in Mombasa on Friday midnight and was received by top government officials.
He had on July 26 left Mombasa to London aboard Kenya Airways.
Some of the officials had earlier on Friday night arrived at JKIA ready to receive the president but were forced to fly to Mombasa aboard a jet to officially receive him.
The president was briefed by among others interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and Chief of Defence Forces Gen Robert Kibochi before he drove off.
He is scheduled to hold private family meetings until Wednesday when he will be in Nairobi for a series of funeral events.
While in the UK, the president secured a number of goodies that will benefit Kenyans at large.
Among others unemployed nurses and health workers from Kenya will have the chance to work in the UK in a new scheme.
UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid and Labour CS Simon Chelugui, signed the agreement on Kenyan recruitment into the UK’s National Health Service.
This was part of a request by Uhuru during his trip to London.
The agreement is open to qualified, but unemployed health professionals.
Kenya has over 5,000 unemployed health workers.
