President William Ruto will today leave the country for official visit to the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
This is his first official visit after he took oath of office as President.
The head of state will first proceed to the United Kingdom to attend the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II scheduled for Monday.
King Charles III will host President Ruto for a dinner upon arrival in the United Kingdom.
He will be among 500 foreign dignitaries who will attend the State Funeral.
After the funeral, the President will leave for the United States of America where he will attend the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
He is expected to meet President Joe Biden and officials from the American chamber of commerce.
The UNGA meeting will be the first to be held in person since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic that discouraged physical interactions.
The UNGA meetings in 2020 and 2021 were held virtually.
