    On Monday, Godec visited Interior CS Fred Matiangi who thanked him for his positive contribution towards expanding our democratic space during his tenure as US envoy to Kenya.

    "I also thank him for the positive engagement we've had on various security matters and wish him well in his future endeavors," Matiangi stated.

    In early January, the United States Senate approved the appointment of former Senator Kyle McCarter as Godec's successor.

    The 56-year-old McCarter takes over after Godec held the position at US Embassy in Nairobi for six years.
