Deputy President William Ruto and Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga were among the dignitaries who attended the dinner at State House.

President Nyusi is on Thursday scheduled to visit Mombasa and Kwale Counties.

In Kwale, he is expected to interact with members of the Makonde community, who were officially given legal recognition as Kenya's 43rd ethnic group by President Kenyatta last year. The Makonde came to Kenya from Mozambique in the 1950s.
