NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 8 – President Uhuru Kenyatta and the 43rd President of the US, George W. Bush, are to discuss oil and gas in their face-to-face meet on Friday in Texas.

“Knowledge sharing about oil and gas in the context of the leading role played by Texas in that area,” Presidential Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu told Capital FM News.

The talks also come in the context of oil and gas deposit discoveries in Kenya and which Energy Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir says the government is keen to exploit in order to bring the cost of doing business in Kenya down.

“You’re aware that there was some major announcement by Africa oil; major because it’s the first time we’re discovering commercial gas in Wajir and the discovery is something we’re looking at very closely towards developing even cheaper power,” he said.

While in Texas, President Kenyatta will also visit the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum where Bush Jr recently showcased his much talked about paintings of world leaders; having taken up the pastime post White House.

“The last two summers Laura and I spent time in Zambia helping refurbish health clinics. I was in charge of the painting, she was in charge of going over the spots I missed…but in my defence I was beginning to study the impressionist movement,” he joked during the US-Africa Leaders Summit on Wednesday.

On his arrival in the United States President Kenyatta also had a tête-à-tête with the 42nd US President Bill Clinton who, “expressed his wish to visit the regional offices of his Foundation in Kenya,” Esipisu said.

On his visit to the US, President Kenyatta has also held talks with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim as well as the US private sector as he seeks to market Kenya as an investment destination.
