It was a beautiful summer evening with good mood, music, food, and drinks at the networking meeting for partners and alumni of Kenyan-German programs, hosted by the German Embassy together with the DAAD Regional Office in Nairobi at the Residence on January 24, 2023. “Diplomatic relations between Kenya and Germany were established in 1963; Germany was the first country to recognize the young republic after Kenya’s independence.” “This year we celebrate 60 years of German-Kenyan relations,” emphasized the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Kenya, H.E. Sebastian Groth, in his welcome address.
