“Centuries old relations between the peoples of our two countries continue to grow in strength as can be demonstrated by the large constituency of Somalilanders in Kenya as well as the ever increasing Kenyan community working for various institutions or operating business in Somaliland” said VP Sayli
While congratulating the people of Kenya for a peaceful election and their defiance of all odds to elect the incoming team of president Uhuru and his deputy Ruto, the Somaliland Vice president Abdirahman Sayli said he was confident that relations between the two countries shall not only be sustained but strengthened as well.
This message of congratulation by VP Sayli comes in the heels of an earlier one by the foreign minister Dr Mohamed Abdilahi Omar that was published by various media houses in Kenya last week.
