We have elevated our diaspora to be the 48th County. The complaint has been that the Kenyan diaspora has not received the attention it deserves. The focus has been on remittances, while their fundamental rights as citizens have been neglected.

 To correct this oversight, I pledge to:

a. Elevate diaspora issues at a ministry level.
b. Strengthen diaspora services in all embassies.

c. Work with parliament to set up a committee that will exclusively deal with diaspora issues.

d. Set up a mechanism for public participation by the Diaspora.

e. Work closely with the IEBC to expand and enhance diaspora participation in elections.

The government will improve its services to Kenyans living abroad, The newly created

State Department for Diaspora Affairs will boost service delivery to Kenyans abroad, especially on

consular matters.

“We are going to decentralize and use technology to bring as many services as we can online. We know many Kenyans spend hours and days traveling to get consular services, the diaspora is a crucial player in Kenya’s economy. “When you support your families back home you are also making a valuable contribution to the economy. Diaspora remittances are now Kenya’s biggest source of foreign exchange, we are keen to work with you; to utilize your networks to bring investments to Kenya so that we can create opportunities and move our country forward. “

His Excellency Hon. William Samoei Ruto, PhD., C.G.H. President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces

Represents the people of Kenya


Represents the bloodshed in the fight for independence.


Represents the fertility of the land


Represents the peace


We want to protect the interest and lives of every Kenyan — those at home and those who go abroad — who are our primary responsibility. We will ensure that any Kenyan in the diaspora knows that this ministry and country cares about them. We will be implementing various measures to improve the lives and welfare of our citizens who travel abroad. I want to work with others to improve the strength of our passport, to enable Kenyans access more countries to work and study in without the need of a visa, or only need a visa on arrival,”

“Kenya offers one of the best investment climates in the wider East African region with limitless trade and investment opportunities. Nairobi is Africa’s connecting hub and regional base of economic and multilateral diplomacy. 

It hosts one of the four United Nations Offices and  numerous international and inter-governmental organizations. A major preferred tourism destination of the world, Tech hub and a hotbed for sportsmen and women. A famed film location & entertainment vibe destination of the world

The focus of the consulate is to service the Kenyan diaspora and enhance relations with the 13 states on the West coast of America,Kenya is a friend of the people of the United States, enjoying 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. My team and I are committed to not only continuing to consolidate relations with the United States but also to cultivate linkages with the various individual state economies.We also deliberately seek to engage and diligently serve and interact with the Kenyan diaspora, who are Kenya’s first line ambassadors and partners in national development endeavors.”
