Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta today held talks with Prince William Arthur, the Duke of Cambridge, who paid him a courtesy call at State House, Nairobi.

The one-on-one meeting between President Kenyatta and Prince William mainly focused on wildlife conservation.

The Duke of Cambridge, who was accompanied by the British High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, briefed President Kenyatta on the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference that will be held in London on 11 and 12 October.
