Turkey President Erdogan Receives 21 Gun Salute, Begin Kenya’s Tour

2Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arrived in Kenya, the East Africa economic powerhouse for a three state visit.

Erdogan and his wife Emine arrived at JKIA at about 11 a.m. Thursday and received by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

At State House Nairobi, national anthems of both countries were played while KDF fired 21 cannon shot in honor of the Turkish President. He then inspected a guard of honour.

During his three day state visit, Erdogan is expected to hold bilateral talks with President Kenyatta.

His visit comes barely a day after Kenya with South Korea signed several agreements in different sectors of interest. Kenya’s economy has been resilient attracting private investors and governments seeking partnerships.

Apart from trade talks military cooperation is also another area which is keen on to partner with other developed nations in the wake of terror threats.

Turkey has immensely invested in neighboring Somalia that is grappling with Al-Shabaab militancy.
