The Head of state congratulated the new premier and the people of Ethiopia for what was the political transition which has a very good lesson for Ethiopia for managing diversity but also for Athe African continent.
Ahmed was appointed by Ethiopia’s ruling coalition in March and sworn in as Premier on April. Meanwhile, Uhuru on Friday at State House, Nairobi, received credentials from five new ambassadors to Kenya.
The diplomats included Mozambique High Commissioner Tsombe Constantino Lidimba, Jacek Bazanski (Poland) Syanga Samuel Abilio (Angola), Yacin Elmi Bouh (Djibouti) and Khalid Khalifa Almualla (United Arab Emirates).
Welcoming the five ambassadors to the country, President Uhuru said Kenya remains committed to enhanced partnership and the promotion of trade with other countries.
