President Uhuru Kenyatta will get a chance to tour the museum of his Reggae icon Bob Marley when he tours Kingston, Jamaica next week, State House has revealed.
In a past interview, President Uhuru Kenyatta conceded being a fan of Reggae music, arguing that the late Jamaican singer, who also fought for freedom, remains one of his best artiste.
The Caribbean nation was colonised by Britain and is well known for Reggae music and short distance races in IAAF and Olympic games.
While at the county, Uhuru will also visit three grave of former journalist and human rights activist Marcus Garvey, where he will be accompanied by his host, Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
Last year, Uhuru met Holness during a G-7 summit it's where the PM invited him to visit Kingston. The visit is scheduled from August 5-7.
President Kenyatta also cited the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) saying: “We must strive to speak in one voice. We are weaker when splintered.”
The two leaders will discuss bilateral relationship between the two countries. Traditionally, the Head of State will be accompanied by Foreign Affairs minister Monica Juma.
"During the visit, the President and his host Prime Minister Holness together with their respective delegations will discuss and explore opportunities for enhanced bilateral relations between Kenya and Jamaica," State House spokesperson Kanze Dena said in a statement on Tuesday.
The Jamaican Reggae singer died in 1981 at University of Florida Hospital, aged 36 following a cancer attack. He remains an icon to many.
