The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly. They have chosen Donald Trump as their 45th President.
Kenya congratulates Mr Trump for his victorious campaign, and his main opponent, Mrs Hillary Clinton, for her valiant effort.
The ties that bind Kenya and the United States of America are close and strong. They are old, and based in the values that we hold dear: in democracy, in the rule of law, and in the equality of peoples.
These values remain dear to the peoples of both nations, and so our friendship will endure.”
