Kenya: President sends Lunar New Year greetings

NAIROBI – Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday sent festive wishes to the Chinese people who will celebrate the Lunar New Year on Saturday.

In his message, Kenyatta said the economic, cultural and people-to-people ties between the two countries are stronger today than they have ever been.

“We fought colonialism together in the past; today, we fight for development that serves our people and protects our planet, and for an international order that respects the equal dignity of all peoples,” Kenyatta said.

He said during this period, the two countries celebrate the vibrant friendship, and hoped that the relations will continue blossoming in future.

“I wish you all a productive and peaceful Chinese New Year 2017,” the president said.

The Chinese Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in China. Every year, hundreds of millions of Chinese travel home during the time for reunions with their families.
