The Vice President was in Kenya today at a pivotal moment--just weeks before a major constitutional referendum. Earlier this morning he met jointly with Kenya's President and Prime Minister to encourage their active support for reform (Watch their statement to the press after the meeting here). He also stopped by Kenya's Parliament to meet privately with the Speaker, as well as the Reform Caucus. Both the Vice President and Dr. Biden visited the August 7th Memorial Park to lay a wreath in memory of the more than 200 people killed by the 1998 embassy bombing in Nairobi.

Next up--The Vice President gives a major speech on Wednesday on U.S.-Kenyan relations at the Kenyatta International Conference Center.
