The Aga Khan is expected in the country today to participate in the 52nd Jamhuri Day celebrations at the invitation of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

During his short visit, his third in five years, the Aga Khan is expected to hold private talks with President Kenyatta and other key Government officials at State House, Nairobi. Jamhuri Day celebrations will take place on Saturday at Nyayo National Stadium.

Later, he will depart for Uganda for the Land Grant and Initiation ceremony for the Aga Khan University Hospital, Kampala.

Like the Aga Khan University Hospitals in Nairobi and in Karachi, both of which have earned accreditation from the US-based Joint Commission International, the hospital in Kampala will seek to provide the best treatment in the world.

The Aga Khan, is the Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslims and founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). In 2010, he came to Nairobi to be part of the 50th anniversary of the Nation Media Group, East and Central Africa’s largest media organisation.

At the time, he held talks with then President Mwai Kibaki. Early this year, he toured Nairobi where he met with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.

A statement from his office said the Aga Khan has had a long-standing cordial relationship with Kenya over the years, and through the AKDN, has made significant contributions to the social and economic development of the country.

Institutions of the AKDN have been at the helm of economic and social development in Kenya for nearly a century, working towards improving the quality of life though multiple cross-sectoral initiatives.

The AKDN is a group of private, international, non-denominational agencies working to improve living conditions and opportunities for people in specific regions of the developing world.

AKDN agencies have individual mandates that range from the fields of health and education to architecture, rural development and the promotion of private-sector enterprise.

The Aga Khan Foundation yesterday handed over Sh3.5 million equipment to the Garissa vocational training centre.
The equipment — including sewing machines, fabric, electrical and beauty therapy products — were received on behalf of the institution by area deputy Abdi Dagane.

Hasma Awadh of the Aga Khan Foundation said the equipment were purchased by funds they received from the EU. She said the three-year project will improve the socio-economic opportunities for youth in Northern Kenya. Dagane said youth enrolment to the centre was still low despite the county’s support.
