Kenya’s President William Ruto is set to visit the US, marking the first official state visit by an African leader in over 15 years.

This visit presents an opportunity for President Joe Biden to showcase America’s commitment to Africa, especially as it faces challenges from rival powers like Russia and China.

Despite past controversies, Ruto has emerged as a key ally for the US, particularly in diplomacy and business in East Africa.

However, US-Africa relations face strains, as seen in recent setbacks in West Africa, highlighting the complex geopolitical dynamics on the continent.

While the US aims to strengthen partnerships with African nations, it must navigate competing interests and evolving power dynamics in a rapidly changing global landscape.
