Message from the High Commission

Welcome to the official website of the Kenya High Commission in Nigeria.

We sincerely hope that you will find the website and its linkages useful for getting news and information about Kenya, with particular attention to the Government, consular services, trade and investment opportunities, travel and tourism, as well as bilateral relations with the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Kenya is geo-strategically located at the confluence of the Great Lakes, Horn of Africa and the Indian Ocean contiguity, making it a gateway to Africa’s major trading blocs such as the East African Community (EAC) and the Common MARKET for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

It offers one of the best investment climates in the wider East African region with limitless Trade and Investment opportunities. In addition, Nairobi is a regional hub of economic and multilateral diplomacy. It hosts one of the four United Nations Offices and numerous international and inter-governmental organisations.

The main focus of the High Commission is to enhance relations with the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Commonwealth and the International Maritime Organisation. Kenya and the Federal Republic of Nigeria enjoy long-standing historical ties which continue to grow from strength to strength and have been transformed into a multifaceted and mutually beneficial partnership. These ties encompass virtually all fields of interests.

It will be my goal to further these relations for the benefit of the citizens of our great nations. We are committed to not only continuing to consolidate relations with our traditional development partners, but also to cultivate linkages with emerging economies.

We also deliberately seek to engage with the vibrant Kenyan diaspora, who are Kenya’s first line ambassadors and partners in national development endeavours.

I hope you will find this website a useful window to Kenya and to the Kenya-Nigeria relations.

H.E Mr. Manoah Esipisu
High Commissioner of the Republic of Kenya to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
