Kenya has denied claims that a section of its envoys have been rejected by their host countries.
Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau said reports that six ambassadors have been rejected due to integrity issues are untrue.
Those who were said to have been rejected are former Sports CS Hassan Wario posted to Austria, Former Air Force commander Samuel Thuita (Israel) and former CID boss Ndegwa Muhoro (Malaysia).
Others are Sarah Serem (China), Richard Ekai (Russia) and Paddy Ahenda (Qatar).
The six are among other envoys who were vetted and endorsed by MPs for deployment to various missions.
Macharia said all the appointees are set to report to their destinations by end of next week.
“The current headlines are untrue and incorrect. The appointees have been deployed and will be reporting to their destinations next week,” he said.
Macharia in a statement said Kenya has never had envoys rejected by any country.
“In fact, all the host countries are ready to receive them and have begun to do so. Every country schedules the presentation ceremonies at specific times depending on their traditions and availability of Head of State,” a statement from the ministry further quoted.
