Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in the country this afternoon and was received with pomp and colour by his host President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Nigerian leader who landed at the Eldoret International Airport shortly after 2:30 pm received full state honours including a 21 gun salute from KDF officers.
Immediately after the arrival ceremonies, President Kenyatta and his guest held tet-a-tet before they left for Moi Barracks in Eldoret for an interdenominational memorial service in honour of KDF soldiers who were killed in El Adde, Somalia following an Al-Shabaab ambush.
The service is also being attended by the Somalia President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who jetted into the country earlier this morning.
The Somali leader was received by senior government officials led by the Deputy President William Ruto and Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed.
Today's prayer meeting is the second that President Kenyatta is attending in a fortnight.
Last week, the President led other political leaders and Government officials at a similar interdenominational service at the Armed Forces Memorial Hospital in Nairobi.
