High Commissioner Makena told press after the Friday meeting that among her achievements during her tenure as envoy to Rwanda was to stabilize the bilateral relations through Joint Permanent Cooperation.

“I thank His Excellency for the great reception I have received in Rwanda through the people of Rwanda who have received Kenya very well,” said Makena.

“We have really strengthened our relations, our relations have been good but we have made them stronger in all spheres by making great strides and efforts in the development of our region and especially in trade, investments and business in the area of development of the financial sector, Public Service and Labor; Energy; Health as well as Transport and Communications.”

The High Commissioner has been appointed the next Ambassador of Kenya to the Netherlands.

Since 2009 after the full accession of Rwanda to the East African Community, bilateral trade and investment flows have been on an upward trend. Kenya is currently the leading exporter to Rwanda.

In addition, Rwanda has waived work permit and resident visa fees for citizens of the East African Community while the Government of Kenya waived work permits for Rwandan nationals wishing to work in Kenya.

In two weeks, Kenyans will cast their votes in the first election since the adoption of a new constitution in 2010, and the fourth since independence.
