Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (ADV) – Namibia’s President Hage G. Geingob returns home on Friday after a two-day state visit to Kenya.

He told reporters upon arrival in Nairobi that his visit was aimed at strengthening cooperation between Kenya and Namibia in the areas of trade, investment and business exchange.

On Thursday evening Geingob held talks with several prominent Namibians and international personalities ahead of his meeting with his host President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday.

Diplomatic sources told ADV that their discussions will focus mainly on trade even though the security agenda will be primordial.

Business people from both countries are engaged in heavy investment adventures in the two countries but Kenya has leverage in the domain with much export from Kenya..

President Geingob’s visit comes barely four days after diplomatic officials of the two countries inaugurated a ministerial session for the recently launched Joint Commission for Cooperation (JCC).

The commission mainly aims at promoting collaboration agreement between Kenya and Namibia with clear timelines for the implementation of the commission’s agenda.
