“Our relationship has been very strong both personally and at the country level. We want to see through you how we can deepen that partnership, that relationship- not just political but also going down to economic and cultural exchanges and exchanges in other fields that are mutually beneficial to the two of us,” President Kenyatta welcomed the new Namibian envoy.
