President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced that Mozambique nationals making visits to the nation will never again require a visa.
Speaking at a state banquet hosted for him and the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta by the Mozambique president Filipe Nyusi and the First Lady Isaura Nyusi.
“Our forefathers fought for political liberation. It falls upon us to ensure economic liberation, to ensure the artificial boundaries created by former colonial masters are removed and that our people are free to travel, trade, do business and marry without obstacles,” President Kenyatta stated.
The president also declared that the country will be opening a consulate in Mozambique’s capital, Maputo, to enhance relations between the two countries.
In November 2017, all Africans were to receive visas upon arriving in the country but that is now no longer a necessity for visiting Mozambicans.
“I urge our Mozambican brothers and sisters to take advantage of this opportunity to invest in Kenya and trade with their Kenyan brothers and sisters,” the president urged.
