The Kenya High Commission in Kampala was established in 1981 as a military liaison office to strengthen the historic relations between Kenya and Uganda with the first High Commissioner, reporting on 2nd March, 1981. The core objective of the High Commission is to advance Kenya's national Interests and Promote bilateral relations between Kenya and Uganda
The two countries have grown to be each others Key trading partner and have extensively implemented important integration measures in the Context of the East African Community (EAC), Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA). The recently adopted African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is expected to deepen this integration even further.
The High Commission therefore plays a pivotal role in the continued promotion of Kenya's national interests in Uganda. It not only serves the Kenyans in Uganda but facilitates promotion of economic cooperation , trade and investments. In addition, it strives to advance the overall bilateral engagement and multilateral cooperation between the two countries.
