Speaking when he handed over the consignment Saudi Ambassador to Kenya Dr Mohammed Khayat said his country will continue supporting vulnerable groups in Kenya.
The donation is in line with its old tradition of sharing dates with the world with all 47 Counties expected to benefit.
Khayat says the donation is part of his Government’s efforts to foster better relations with Kenya.
