Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetang'ula will today lead a group of legislators to receive a consignment of two vehicles from Algeria.
The donation is as a result of negotiations during an official visit to the North African country by the Wetang'ula early this year.
The event will take place at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
The vehicles donated are fully kitted ambulance and a Mercedes Executive Van donated by the People's Republic of Algeria to the Republic of Kenya.
The consignment will be received by the speaker on behalf of the Government. The Algerian diplomat in Kenya will also be present.
The relationship between the two nations has been getting better in the last few months.
Wetang'ula announced in February that Kenya will export tea, coffee, nuts, fruits and flowers to Algeria and import oil and gas from the North African country.
Wetang’ula made the announcement after a week-long tour of Algeria where he held discussions with the country’s minister for Energy and Mines Mohamed Arkab and his Trade and Export counterpart Kamel Rezig.
“Kenya has discovered oil resources but it is just at the initial stages of discovery and research. Algeria having traded in oil for many years, will be of help to our country in many aspects of the sector,” said Wetang’ula.
Wetang'ula noted that Africa needs to deal with trade barriers in transacting business in the continent.
