Aga Khan in Nairobi for Diamond Jubilee

His Highness the Aga Khan has arrived in Kenya at the invitation of the State.

The spiritual leader of the Shia Ismaili Muslims was received by Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma and leaders from his community as well as the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).

He is expected to meet with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.

The Aga Khan’s arrival is part of celebrations to mark his Diamond Jubilee, 60 years since his accession to his role of spiritual leadership.

The year-long celebration commenced on July 11, last year.

Some of the organizations spearheaded by the spiritual leader include the Nation Media Group, Aga Khan University Hospital, Diamond Trust Bank (DTB), Jubilee Insurance and Aga Khan schools.

However, there have been speculations that the Aga Khan– principal shareholder of Nation Media Group–may be looking to divest from his long time interest in both the print and broadcast industry.
