US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Lands in Nairobi

China to US Don’t blame us for Africa’s accumulated debt

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has canceled events he was scheduled to undertake in Nairobi on Saturday, the second day of his three-day visit to Kenya.

According to a statement given by State Department spokesman Steve Goldstein, Secretary Tillerson is not feeling well after long days of working on major issues back in the US.

He held a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government officials at State House soon after his arrival. He will become the first sitting USA president to ever meet with a North Korean leader, although the White House says North Korea has to take "concrete" steps on denuclearization in order to ensure the meeting happens.

Officials accompanying Mr Tillerson, 65, on his five-nation tour of Africa did not specify his illness but it is understood not to be serious.

Tillerson's Saturday schedule included an event for PEPFAR, the US government-funded programme to fight HIV/AIDS, a visit to American diplomats at the USA embassy in Nairobi and a wreath-laying ceremony commemorating the 20-year anniversary of the deadly al-Qaeda bombing of U.S embassies in Kenya and Tanzania which killed 224 people.

The announcement comes little more than 24 hours after US President Donald Trump stunned the world by accepting an invitation to meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un before the end of May.

The US secretary of state has been on the road for four days, visiting Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya.

Tillerson is due to travel to Chad on Monday then on to Nigeria a day later.
