Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Kenya late Wednesday afternoon, the second stop on his three-nation Africa tour. He left Eritrea to fly directly to the port city of Mombasa where he was greeted upon arrival by his Kenyan counterpart, Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo.

On Thursday, Wang will meet with other Kenyan ministers and then head to Statehouse, Mombasa for what’s been described as a “courtesy call” with President Uhuru Kenyatta. Later, the two will then go together to the new Kipevu Oil Terminal (KOT) that’s now under construction by Chinese contractors at the Port of Mombasa.
