President Kenyatta said that Kenya and Mozambique will, beside their economic partnership, work together in fighting terrorism and other forms of organised crimes.

President Nyusi said he was impressed by the democratic space in Kenya and encouraged President Kenyatta to continue fostering the principle of separation of powers, which is the cornerstone of democracy.

He said that Mozambicans will always remain grateful for the role Kenya played in bringing the Mozambican civil war to an end.

"Kenya, to Mozambique, is not just another country. It is part of our history," he said.

He praised Kenya as a land of champions including the first African Woman Nobel Laureate Prof Wangari Maathai and legendary athletes like Kipchoge Keino.
