“Indeed, I’ve noticed in the conversations in Western countries and their counterparts in Asia and the Middle East a return to competition over Africa. In some cases weaponizing divisions, pursuing proxy actions, and behaving like Africa is for the taking. Well, I want to tell you it is not!”
– President Uhuru Kenyatta
2nacheki TV recently ranked a speech from the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, as one of the Best Speeches of 2020. So it was only right to do my due diligence and find out for myself.
Speaking at the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center earlier this year, President Kenyatta discussed the future of the United States and Kenya partnership. Kenya is the U.S.’s strongest ally in Africa, with their union aimed at advancing counter-terrorism, defense and security cooperation, and economic relations. And over the last decade, several companies from the U.S. have entered Kenya’s market to conduct business throughout the country.
For those who’ve been following this blog, you know that I’m indifferent about trade politics between European nations and Africa. But I’ll suppress my rant for now and share his speech.
