"All the credit" for the meeting went to the Kenyan political leaders, Tillerson said, in response to a question as to whether the USA had a role in organising it.

Kenyatta, for his part, said during the meeting that the solid friendship and cooperation that continues to deepen, only serves to encourage Kenya to strengthen its resolve to work together with the USA toward an even brighter future, the statement said.
Friday's meeting came hours before the arrival of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as part of his first Africa tour.
