Kenya looking to extend current collaboration agreements with Namibia

Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Health Cleopa Mailu says his country is looking to extend current collaboration agreements with Namibia.
Possible areas identified include the agricultural sector.
Collaboration in the health sector currently dominates Namibia-Kenya relations after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed for training and exchange of health personnel.
For the past four-years, Kenyan nurses have been deployed to public health facilities across the country, while Namibia has increased efforts to train locals at the Unam School of Medicine.
Kenya is known for its large-scale commercial agricultural exports, and the Health Ministry's Cabinet Secretary says his country wants to help Namibia increase its own output.
This follows an agreement with small-scale cooperatives.
Doctor Mailu was in the country to deliver a letter to President Hage Geingob from his counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta, and to lobby for Foreign Affairs' Minister Amina Mohammed's candidacy for the position of African Union Commission Chairperson.
