Aga Khan arrives for regional visit

The Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the Ismaili community, arrived in the country on Wednesday evening for a private visit.

The Aga Khan, who is also the founder of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), was welcomed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka and senior government officials.

Others at the airport were AKDN Kenya resident representative Aziz Bhaloo, Aga Khan Council for Kenya president Zul Abdul and the council’s vice-president, Anwar Hajee.

During his visit, the Aga Khan will preside over the opening of the Aga Khan University Hospital’s state-of the-art Heart and Cancer Centre.

The unit, built at a cost of $50 million, is one of the best cancer and heart treatment centres in the region and comparable to any in developed countries.

He will also preside over  the ground-breaking ceremony of the Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media.

The Aga Khan will later visit members of the Ismaili community in Mombasa.
