“We’re not going to take our eyes away from it. Kenya matters. If our largest embassy is in Nairobi, Kenya, that means we have a stake in that country, and Africa has a stake, and this government is looking at where the trend lines will go after the polls,” the bureau said on Sunday, September 17 as quoted by The Daily Nation.

Yamamoto is pushing for both candidates to hold talks and iron out sticky issues ahead of the repeat polls.
