Britain Vows Continued Support for Kenya

The U.K. has assured Kenya of its continued assistance in areas such as trade, tourism and development. British Foreign Office Minister Henry Bellingham said the U.K. will continue to support Kenya’s constitutional, electoral and police reforms, as well as anti-corruption efforts.

Parliamentary Undersecretary of State for International Development Stephen O’Brien, meanwhile, reiterated that the British government will provide “significant development assistance” to help Kenya realize the Millennium Development Goals.

The two U.K. leaders lauded the African nation’s progress on police reform and constitutional review ahead of the referendum in August.

Bellingham and O’Brien met with Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga on May 28.
