50 Zambian students to join Utalii College following Uhuru – Lungu talks

NAIROBI, 18 Jun – 50 Zambian students will join Kenya Utalii College as part of enhancing bilateral ties between Kenya and Zambia.

The training is scheduled to start as soon as feasible, said a statement from State House.

The agreement was reached between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Zambian counterpart Edgar Lungu this past weekend in Nairobi.

President Lungu, who has been in Kenya on a private visit, visited the Ronald Ngala Utalii College in Kilifi to appraise himself with the development of the tourism sector in Kenya.

The talks between the two leaders also focused on how to enhance bilateral ties and increase cooperation in sectors including tourism, transport, trade, investment, air-link and regional security.

Kenya and Zambia have for many years enjoyed warm relations where they co-operate in areas such as agriculture, tourism, education and information communication and technology (ICT).

The two countries have an existing MOU on science, technology and innovation.

President Kenyatta visited Zambia in 2014 during the burial of former President, the late Michael Sata before, returning to the country on a State visit in  July 2015 on the invitation of President Lungu.

President Kenyatta visited Zambia again in 2016 to attend the African Development Bank (AfDB) meeting.
