Kenyans have overwhelmingly congratulated His Excellency the Head of State president Uhuru Kenyatta after receiving the top most award from Barbados governor.
The Head of State was awarded the Order of Freedom of Barbados by the governor of Barbados Dame Sandra Mason at the government headquarters on Wednesday afternoon.
This is the highest award that the foreign nation that confers to their own Government officials or even foreign nationals for exemplary service to humanity.
The Kenyan Head of State is in the Carribean nation to attend the ongoing UNCTAD15 conference during which he handed over the leadership of the global multilateral trade and development institution to Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley.
This comes after, president Uhuru Kenyatta, on Tuesday, handed over the mantle of hosting the 15th session of UNCTAD to Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley of Barbados.
“It is my privilege today to pass the mantle of hosting UNCTAD 15 to Barbados, through Your Excellency the Prime Minister. I do so, well aware that UNCTAD15 is taking place in extraordinary circumstances which have compelled us to hold most of the meetings virtually.
Below are reactions from Kenyans.
