    Nairobi, 22 July 2011 – Mawlana Hazar Imam met with His Excellency President Mwai Kibaki at Harambee House in Nairobi today. Continuing his Jamati visit to Kenya, Hazar Imam had returned to the capital after spending a few days in Mombasa where he met with the Jamat and visited the Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa.

    At the Aga Khan Academy, Mawlana Hazar Imam met with the Academies Unit, Planing and Construction Management staff and architects to review plans for future development, including the addition of a nursery school and a faculty village. Children from the school choir, which had been practising during school holidays ahead of the Kenya National Music Festival taking place next week, performed two songs for Hazar Imam.

    Mawlana Hazar Imam is in Kenya to meet with the Jamat after having visited with Jamats in Tanzania and Uganda. While in Nairobi, Hazar Imam will also preside over the opening of the Aga Khan University Hospital's Heart and Cancer Unit, and the groundbreaking of the Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media and Communications.
