Joe Biden recently hosted the President of Kenya at the White House.

On Thursday, Biden met with Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss human rights, peace and security and economic growth in Eastern Africa. The White House also said the two discussed efforts to fight corruption and ensure “transparency and accountability to domestic and international financial systems.”

This comes after Kenyatta was named on the Pandora Papers as a corrupt foreign leader, stockpiling money in offshore accounts.

“On the issue of trade and investment to countries, this I believe is vital. Not only in terms of further entrenching American interests on the continent, but also in helping us also achieve our social economic agenda. That’s another agenda that we are also going to be engaged in,” said Kenyatta.

Biden and Kenyatta are widely expected to address Pandora Papers disclosures, but it remains unclear if they will make a public statement on the matter.
