Ghanaian’s president John Dramani Mahama left Accra Thursday morning heading for Kenya.
With him is a high-powered Ghanaian delegation on a three-day official visit to Kenya.
What does this mean?
Geo-politically, this is very significant. The relationship between Kenya and Ghana is traced back to Ghana’s first President Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s founding President.
President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya wants to bring more economic partners on-board. President Mahama chairs the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and Kenyetta, who heads the East African Community (EAC).
Both can be great economic ambassadors to these bodies.
Ghana is likely to follow Nigeria in investing in Kenya and allowing Kenyans to invest in Ghana.
This propels the East African economic giant notches higher on the powerhouse grid.
Kenya is among Africa’s top 10 economies.
President Kenyatta is believed to be a serious corporate executive, and by combining both corporate and political leadership wisely is likely to push Kenya to Africa’s top 3 economies and strongest militaries.
