President Uhuru Kenyatta left the country Thursday night for Los Angeles in the United States for the annual Milken Institute Global Conference.

The conference brings together political and business leaders to exchange ideas in a bid to overcome some of the world’s toughest challenges.

The President will address the Milken Institute Corporate and Investor Roundtable on April 27.

He will also address the conference later in the evening from 5pm to 6pm.

This session of the conference is private and will be off the record. During the session, senior government officials, representatives of leading corporations and investors will discuss topics, trends and strategies related to increasing investment in developing markets.

Another Kenyan speaker will be Gachao Kiuna, CEO of TransCentury, an infrastructure company based in Kenya.

President Paul Kagame of Rwanda will also attend the forum.

He will address the same sessions as President Kenyatta.

Presidents Kenyatta and Kagame are expected to be the only foreign heads of state attending the conference, which is scheduled to run from April 26 to 29.

President Kenyatta is also expected to meet Kenyans living in the US on April 25 at the Hilton hotel at Los Angeles International Airport.
