Former Kenyan President Flown to Israel for Medical Checks


Here’s a story that seems to have flown under the radar, being mentioned only in the African press: former Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi was just in Israel for medical checks at Ichalov Hospital.

According to reports, he also managed to tour Jerusalem.

This news is of interest, because it seems to reaffirm just how good relations are between Israel and Kenya. Perhaps Kenya’s absence at the recent UN resolution vote declaring the status of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “null and void” was a reflection of how Israel’s Africa policy is slowly having an effect.
