Deputy President William Ruto started a three-day official visit to Sudan on Monday.
Ruto’s visit, on invitation by Sudan’s government, is aimed at boosting economic relations in the areas of agriculture and industrialisation.
The DP is expected to hold talks with Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir at the Presidential Palace in Khartoum.
He will also meet First Vice President Lieutenant General Bakri Hassa, National Assembly Speaker Ibrahim Ahmed Omar and other senior government officials.
Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri, his Industrialisation counterpart Adan Mohammed, Agriculture committee chairman Adan Haji and Malava MP Malulu Injendi accompanied Ruto.
The Kenyan delegation is expected to visit successful industries in Khartoum, among them a chicken farm, a slaughterhouse, Kenana Sugar Company which is regarded as the world’s largest producer and a currency-printing company.
Sudan considers Kenya an important African country for its contributions to the conclusion of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in South Sudan.
