In Kenya push, France seals business deals worth over 2 billion euros


NAIROBI (Reuters) - French firms signed contracts in Kenya worth some 2 billion euros (£1.7 billion) during a visit on Thursday by President Emmanuel Macron, who wants to deepen France's economic ties with Anglophobe East Africa.

Macron's visit to Nairobi is the first by a French president since Kenya won independence from Britain in 1963 and follows stopovers in Ethiopia and Djibouti - all countries where China has moved in aggressively and presents stiff competition.
