Visit of the Kenyan High Commissioner

Apr 19, 2023

The Assistant External Relations Minister, Deputy Ian Gorst, welcomed the Kenyan High Commissioner on Friday during a private visit to the island to discuss ways in which the two jurisdictions can collaborate more closely. 

The value that Kenyan nationals already bring to the island both economically through their contributions to the hospitality and construction sectors as well as culturally to Island life and community groups was recognised, with benefits to both Jersey and Kenya. One area of discussion was the potential employment opportunities for Kenyans across Jersey’s health sector. 

Background: H.E. Mr. Manoah Esipisu is a Kenyan diplomat and the current Kenyan High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. He assumed office in 2018, succeeding Lazarus Amayo. Prior to this, he served as the State House Spokesperson and Head of the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit in Kenya, where he was responsible for communicating the activities and policies of the President to the public and the media.
