Earlier, Tillerson announced $533 million in food security assistance for Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia and the Lake Chad region.

Tillerson announced the grant, saying it will support safe drinking water programmes, emergency healthcare and hygiene programmes to treat and prevent the spread of disease, and reunification of families separated by conflict. Ethiopia is a prime case study: the total USA direct investment in the country is around $567 million, while Chinese investments amount to about $15 billion, according to the State Department.

He is also billed to visit Nigeria. And he said he was "looking forward to more opportunities to trade" with Kenya.
