Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to become the first African leader to be hosted by US President Joe Biden at the White House on Thursday.
White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said the two would discuss “efforts to defend democracy and human rights, advance peace and security, accelerate economic growth, and tackle climate change”.
The presidents will also talk about “the need to bring transparency and accountability to domestic and international financial systems”.
The meeting comes weeks after President Kenyatta’s name appeared in the Pandora Papers leak over international financial dealings.
President Kenyatta said he would respond to the allegations after he returns from his trip.
