The Kenya South Sudan Liaison Office (Kessulo)

  1. The Agreement on Technical, Economic and Cultural Co-operations between the Government of Kenya and Government of Southern Sudan Which was signed on 7th July, 2006.

Rationale For Kenya’s Contribution To Post-Conflict Reconstruction In South Sudan

Kenya’s Foreign Policy is informed by a long-term vision that envisages her being an important player in a harmonised and fully integrated African Continent – a continent that is influential and has a strong voice in world affairs.

Kenya’s continued engagement in the South Sudan’s peace processes, post-conflict reconstruction and development is part of that long-range rationale.

Consolidation, stability and economic prosperity in South Sudan and the Sub-region as a priority national interest.

Having invested heavily and consistently in education, training and manpower development since independence, Kenya has excess skilled manpower capacity in many fields.  This pool of skilled manpower has been made available for the training, technical assistance, mentoring and coaching and consultancy services in various fields for GOSS Ministries and Institutions.  Kenya’s training institutions, covering a wide variety of skills have also been availed to fast track the capacity building for South Sudan.



Management, Coordination and Facilitation of the Training and Capacity Building Programme to the Government of South Sudan.
