“We are ready to deepen collaboration mechanisms with the Jubilee party just as we have done with the African National Congress of South Africa and the Chama cha Mapinduzi of Tanzania,” he affirmed.
He added that the amazing transformative development achieved by China had been through the culture of hard work, a path chartered by a strong political party.
The senior Central Committee member of CPC, who is leading the ruling party delegation to Kenya, shared with President Kenyatta the vision of their Party by the year 2050.
On his part, President Kenyatta welcomed and congratulated the Chinese party senior officials for holding a successful 19th National Communist Party Congress late last year.
He noted the Party’s National Congress, which has now scaled up the country’s development path up to the year 2050, is worth emulating.
Also in attendance were Jubilee Party officials who included Nelson Dzuya (Chairman), Raphael Tuju (Secretary General) and David Murathe ( Deputy Chairman).
