Despite Uhuru’s Snub, Sri Lanka President Set To Attend Kenya@50 Celebrations

December 9, 2013

Last month, President Uhuru Kenyatta snubbed the 23rd Commonwealth summit held in Sri Lanka. He chose to attend the Third Africa-Arab Summit in Kuwait.

This was interpreted by many as a snub to Britain, and Western powers as a whole, but it’s probable Sri Lanka authorities were not amused.

It is interesting therefore, that the host country, Sri Lanka, will have it’s president attend Kenya@50 celebrations this week.

In his official Twitter account, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has confirmed that he will be in Kenya after travelling to South Africa to pay his respect to Mandela.

President will visit South Africa to pay respect to the late Nelson Mandela & then visit Kenya. -Presidential Spokesman Mohan Samaranayake.

It’s interesting how this is developing.
