by kenya-tribune

Nairobi — Foreign and Diaspora Affairs Cabinet Secretary Dr. Alfred Mutua is on an official visit to United States where he has been visiting Kenya’s missions as well as meeting with the Kenyan diaspora.

During the tour Dr Mutua has visited Kenya’s Los Angeles Mission as well as Kenya’s Washington D.C. Embassy on Thursday.

He also met with Kenyans living in Diaspora in Seattle, Washington, at an event organized by the North West Kenyan Association in the United States.

The Kenyans he met in Seattle were glad to get the opportunity to interact with him and share their experiences and expectations of President William Ruto’s government.

Appreciating the huge contribution they make to our economy through their remittances, Dr. Mutua assured them that the Ruto government will enact changes which will impact them positively.

Among the changes he mentioned are plans to open more consulates in the United States; one for the Midwest, either in Chicago or Mineappolis, another for the South, either in Dallas or Atlanta, and one in the Northwest in Seattle.

Dr. Mutua also said that more mobile biometric kits to process passports, Huduma Numbers and Identity Cards will be made available.

He said that the government is also working on a Diaspora Mpesa service and a banking and loan system for Kenyans to save at home which will also encourage Kenyans and foreigners to invest in Kenya, so that they can take advantage of the Public Private Partnership program and low cost housing ventures and other projects in Kenya.
