On Tuesday, April 2 afternoon, President William Ruto will depart on a State Visit to Ghana, followed by an Official Visit to Guinea-Bissau.

In a statement, State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohammed said Ruto would meet with Presidents Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana and Umaro Sissoco Embaló of Guinea-Bissau to improve diplomatic, commercial, and historical links between Kenya and the two West African states.


In Ghana, President Ruto will underline the necessity of working together to build and consolidate democratic government in Africa.

“He will also visit the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) headquarters in Accra, with a focus on boosting Kenyan tea and leather exports to Ghana. This effort will be supported by Memorandums of Understanding between private and public sector entities, aimed at improving trade between Kenya and Ghana under the AfCFTA,” read the statement in part.

Ruto will also address the Ghana-Kenya Business Forum to discuss investment and trade prospects in a variety of areas.

As the African Union Champion for Institutional Reform and Chair of the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change, the Head of State will also advocate for the African Union to become a leading force for continental unity and economic revitalization, engaging other regions around the world.

Ruto’s goal in Guinea-Bissau is to strengthen economic connections and explore new opportunities for collaboration with Lusophone Africa via the Africa Continental Free economic Area.
